Saving Places is now On Demand! 


While you are doing your part by staying at home – watch a great new documentary AND save those who save places.   

Saving Places is a breathtaking documentary that follows the intrepid crews and passionate volunteers of HistoriCorps, a small but mighty non-profit organization, through an entire season of challenging work preserving and restoring over a dozen highly threatened, historically significant buildings on public lands.  

With the current COVID-19 crisis HistoriCorps is in dire need of your help and support. The organization has been forced to suspend its operations and postpone its season. By watching this movie and recommending it to all your friends, and encouraging them to reach out to their friends, together we will raise the funds to help HistoriCorps weather this storm, bring back its staff, and save more places that matter to all of us.

Volunteers, Partners, Donors, and Friends,

JUNE 15, 2020

After being knocked down by the COVID-19 pandemic, picking ourselves up, dusting ourselves off, and figuring out how to adapt to this brave new world, HistoriCorps is thrilled to announce that we are re-launching our 2020 season July 1.

How have we adapted? We have created strong safety protocols using the very best sources for guidance, from the CDC to our federal partners and leading youth conservation corps. We have a well thought out schedule of projects, chosen and designed, first and foremost, to ensure the safety of our Volunteers, Staff, Corps Members, and Partners.

Thank you for sticking by our side during these uncertain times. Supporters like you have made HistoriCorps successful for the past 10 years, kept our spirits up during the first, horrible phase of the COVID-19 crisis, and encouraged us to rise to the challenge. Now, together, we look confidently to the next 10 years. Following are multiple ways you can help us launch on July 1. Let’s get started!

You may remember that we donated most of our masks, suits, gloves, and goggles (personal protective equipment, or “PPE”) to help our frontline workers at a local hospital in Lakewood, Colorado. Now that we can replenish our stock without adversely affecting our health workers, we need your donations to purchase PPE or in-kind contributions of equipment (must be sealed or unopened). Our goal is $5,000 to ensure all our volunteers have the protection they need this season.

We need Volunteers. If you are able to safely volunteer, we want you now! Please review our updated safety protocols here. If you would like to receive notifications of all of our 2020 projects and volunteer opportunities, please sign up for our project announcement list here.

Additional donations will help us replace worn equipment and upgrade tools and supplies, which is critical to supporting our mission of engaging volunteers and youth in preservation.

Thank you for helping us through these unprecedented times. We could not be more excited to see and hear from all of you.

Here’s to a successful and very safe 2020!
