Volunteers Needed

Volunteer at a C4 Zero Waste Event

Leadville Race Series volunteers are the key to making these events environmentally sustainable.  Since 2012 at Leadville Race Series Events, we have kept more than 80% of all trash out of the landfill through recycling, composting and outreach efforts.  That’s over 30,000 pounds of waste diverted every year, 70,000 pounds of carbon reduced from our earth’s atmosphere and many natural resources saved!  Help educate participants on how to recycle and compost.  You will be placed at an aid station or at the start/finish to cheer racers on while providing a valuable service.

Position Available

The Cloud City Conservation Center is looking for an Executive Director who is deeply committed to environmental sustainability and our independent mountain community of Leadville, Colorado.  We are a small and scrappy non-profit that excels at doing real on-the-ground work, and bringing the community together around a shared vision.  The new ED will build on recent past successes that include a new community solar array, recycle drop-sites, composting in the schools, income qualified home energy retrofits and, coming soon, a community greenhouse and farm.  The successful candidate can supervise staff and programs as well as manage programs themselves.  A masters degree and at least five years experience are requested.   Send cover letter, resume and three references to info@cloudcityconservation.org by June 30th, with the subject line: C4 ED
