Spruce Up logo

McDowell Engineering sponsors two local Adopt-a-Highway projects. We typically hold our semiannual Spruce Up Colorado events in late May and early October. This is an excellent volunteer opportunity for local service groups.

Urban Plan logo

UrbanPlan is an exciting educational initiative of the Urban Land Institute (ULI) developed in partnership with the Fisher Center for Real Estate and Urban Economics at the University of California, Berkeley and a team of high school economics and government teachers.

UrbanPlan is a realistic, engaging, and academically challenging classroom-based, web-supported program in which high school students learn the roles, issues, trade-offs, and economics involved in urban development. It provides our future voters, neighbors, community leaders, public officials, and land use professionals with a hands-on experience in developing realistic land use solutions to vexing urban growth challenges.

The courses are designed to provide high school students with an indepth look at potential career opportunities. The CAD courses cover AutoCAD concepts, blueprint reading, 3-D modeling, and workplace skills. The Pre-Engineering course covers basic engineering concepts in the many fields of engineering.

McDowell Engineering volunteers time and engineering expertise on the Arapahoe National Forest. The Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests and Pawnee National Grassland is located in north central Colorado. The forests and grassland encompasses 1.5 million acres and extends north to the Wyoming border, south of Interstate 70 to Mount Evans, west across the Continental Divide to the Williams Fork area and includes short grass prairie east of I-25.

MS Walk logo

The National MS Society is a collective of passionate individuals who want to do something about MS now—to move together toward a world free of multiple sclerosis. MS stops people from moving. The National MS Society exists to make sure it doesn't. The Society helps people affected by MS by funding cutting-edge research, driving change through advocacy, facilitating professional education, and providing programs and services that help people with MS and their families move their lives forward. McDowell Engineering's staff, family, and friends regularly provide a group of volunteers for Denver and Winter Park's annual MS Walk.
