Fundraising Events 2018

The Friends of the Dillon Ranger District holds various fundraising events throughout the year to benefit all of our programs and projects. Our dedicated volunteers assist in most of these events, and we encourage folks to come out and participate! Your volunteer time in helping us with these events is just as valuable to our organization as time spent on trails and forest projects.
