Tree Planting Service Project
Since the devastating Waldo Canyon Fire in 2012, the El Paso County Bar Association and the Pikes Peak Justice and Pro Bono Center have held yearly volunteer events to help restore burn areas. Volunteer lawyers, judges, and other legal professionals turn out en masse to plant native tree seedlings in burn areas to revegetate them and mitigate future fire and other environmental danger.
Over the course of the past six years, our volunteers in this program have planted over 5,000 seedlings and reforested areas in Cave of the Winds and Pike National Forest.

Habitat for Humanity
Volunteering with Habitat for Humanity has been a yearly event amongst the lawyers, judges, paralegals, and other legal professionals here in the Pikes Peak region. This project was originally overseen by the Bar but has now moved under the jurisdiction of The Justice Center.
Volunteers have dedicating time to work with Habitat for Humanity for 12 years now - 2018 will mark the 13th. We've had wonderful volunteer turnouts each year and great participation. At the most recent Habitat project Bar members worked on we had over 60 volunteers who provided over 100 combined hours of service.
