The Greenway Foundation (TGF) was thrilled to take part in Southwest Denver’s Safe Summer Kickoff event at Garfield Lake Park on June 2nd. TGF participated in the event as a part of the MY Outdoor Colorado coalition, which received funding from Great Outdoors Colorado to provide additional outdoor programming and park improvements for residents of the Westwood neighborhood.
Staff from TGF’s SPREE program spent the day helping kids build bird houses and bug boxes, teaching them about Denver’s urban beavers, and sharing information on TGF programs with families. TGF’s Executive Director, Jeff Shoemaker, also spoke at the event along with Mayor Hancock and the Deputy Manager of Denver Parks and Recreation. It was a beautiful day and a great time was had by all!
