Fall stewardship days return to South Platte

Posted

There are two upcoming opportunities for people who would like to volunteer to tend to the South Platte River.

Both events take place on Sept. 25 at Globeville Landing Park. Parking for the events will be available at the Denver Coliseum, 4600 Humboldt St., with the entrance gate located at 46th Avenue under I-70.

The Greenway Foundation’s Fall Family ​Stewardship Day takes place from 9-11 a.m. This event is designed for families with children ages 12 and younger. Volunteers will start the day with a trash pick-up led by South Platte River Environmental Education (SPREE) staff, and will finish with crafts and activities that can be taken home or completed in the park with physical distancing measures.

The Pacifico Preserves Fall South Platte ​Stewardship Day presented by The Nature Conservancy takes place from 8-11:15 a.m. This event is for adult volunteers or families with children age 12 and older.

Breakfast will be provided at both events. Visit the Greenway Foundation’s website for more information on what to bring.

Both events are free, but both require advance registration. Both events have limited space, so early registration is highly recommended.

The Greenway Foundation is a Denver-based nonprofit that was founded in 1974 to protect the South Platte River. Today, the organization “protects and revitalizes watersheds, promotes water stewardship, champions environmental education, stimulates innovative policies and practices while also celebrating the historic, recreational and environmental roles involving water that flows through our communities,” states its website.
