This year’s Fall Stewardship Day was a success! Last Saturday, The Greenway Leadership Corps (GLC) had a blast helping out our South Platte River. We partnered with Environmental Learning for Kids (ELK) and City Wild to connect 40 high school and middle school students from all around Denver to our river.
The day started with a historic trolley ride, conducted by our very own board member, Pete West! After being dropped off just North of the Mile High Stadium, we participated in an in-stream trash pick up. Our findings included 3 electric scooters, 10 wheels, a traffic cone, a fire extinguisher, a fire alarm, and pounds of miscellaneous trash.
We finished the day kayaking with City Wild down the Confluence rapids! Each participant getting multiple chances to master the art of paddling.
Thank you to all of our volunteers and partners who helped make our GLC South Platte Stewardship Day so successful!
