Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers (RFOV) is dedicated to creating public lands stewards through volunteer trail work and landscape restoration in the Roaring Fork and Middle Colorado watersheds in Pitkin, Garfield, Eagle, and Gunnison Counties. Founded in 1995, the organization has focused primarily on riparian/riverine and littoral restoration. Following the 2018 Lake Christine Fire in Basalt, RFOV has begun to actively pursue post-fire restoration and pre-fire mitigation. RFOV engages with 100+ partnership organizations from government, non-profit, and business organizations that supplement our work with their expertise toward creating fire adapted communities.
