This past Saturday, SPREE, along with Denver Parks and Recreation, welcomed 20 families in Globeville Landing Park to work together for Fall Family South Platte Stewardship Day. Over 50 adults and children joined in on a fun morning of picking up trash in a beautiful park along our River. The SPREE family community was supported by the adult stewardship day volunteers working on similar projects in the park: mulching trees in the park, fixing up flower beds, and making the playground safer. All in all, our families collected about 15 bags of trash from around the park, pathways, and the river. None of it would have been possible without the help and support of the Greenway Foundation community.
In addition to cleaning the park, the SPREE tent had fun crafts and activities for all ages. We identified local wildlife scat in the game “Whose Scat is That?. We learned more about where some of our pollution comes from with the Enviroscape, which shows how pollution travels through our cities and neighborhoods. Volunteers who visited our tent were able to draw lollipops for even more prizes! Thank you all for your support, and keep an eye out for more stewardship and family activities in weekends to come!
