Kendall Chastain is the Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator for Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (VOC). She is responsible for engaging with the public to promote VOC’s outdoor stewardship opportunities, recruiting and retaining volunteers, actively managing volunteer project rosters, and assisting VOC staff, volunteers, and small groups with registrations and waitlists. Kendall’s friendly demeanor and ability to handle large datasets helps to keep project registration flowing smoothly and efficiently.
Through working on trail crews and as a Park Ranger for the U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management on Colorado’s Western Slope, Kendall discovered the unique connection and sense of place that comes from working hard and giving back to one’s community. After earning her Masters degree in Environmental Management with an emphasis in Integrative Public Land Management at Western Colorado University in Gunnison, Kendall relocated to Denver to join VOC in 2020 to help others find that same connection.
