HistoriCorps saves and sustains historic places for public benefit through partnerships that foster public involvement, engage volunteers and provide training and education.

How To Volunteer For A HistoriCorps Project

HistoriCorps projects are designed with the volunteer in mind. Tools, safety equipment, and meals are included in all work projects. Our project leaders are hired because they are not only specialists in their field, they are impassioned teachers that want to pass on traditional building and restoration trades skills to a new generation of preservationists.

Devil's Head Tower
Completed Project

Devil’s Head Lookout Tower celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2012 and is one of the best-known and only remaining Forest Service fire lookouts in continuous operation in Colorado. In August of 2013, HistoriCorps volunteers rehabilitated this historic treasure so it can continue to spot wildfires and attract over 15,000 tourists every year. They connected to the wilderness while gaining new skills and enjoying great company – it was the ultimate volunteer vacation!
