The Sand Creek Regional Greenway is a jewel in the necklace of trails that has made Denver a national model for linked trail systems. This 14-mile public greenway connects the High Line Canal in Aurora, Colorado with the South Platte River Greenway in Commerce City. Along the way, it passes through northeast Denver and the new Stapleton community. The Sand Creek Regional Greenway is open every day from dawn until dusk. Runners, walkers, nature viewers, horseback riders, and leashed dogs are encouraged to enjoy the trail.
What You'll Do:
Volunteers will contribute to ongoing restoration efforts of Sand Creek by planting trees, shrubs, and wetland vegetation, that are native to riparian areas of Colorado. They will also help manage certain species of noxious weeds.
Why It Matters:
By incorporating native vegetation into the project area, volunteers will contribute to an overall improvement of the ecological integrity and increased biodiversity of Sand Creek. In the past, Sand Creek was overrun with noxious weeds and other non-native, undesirable vegetation. Now that Denver Parks and Recreation has taken ownership and management of this area, restoration projects have begun but with the help of volunteers will see completion of this important endeavor.
