Your Actions Make a Difference
Taking care of the watershed that takes care of us is not only rewarding, it’s necessary to our future. There are so many ways to be good stewards. Whether you donate money, volunteer time, share your knowledge, or all of the above—the good news is that every effort counts.
Together our actions add up to something incredible. The results are easy to see. And enjoy!
Our Ongoing Stewardship Projects
The Greenway Foundation hosts an annual, year-long competition for Colorado university students designed to address pollution in the South Platte River. This real-world competition has led to real change for our waterways.
Nautilus is an exciting project for Colorado’s waterways that was pioneered at Greenway’s Clean Water Challenge. By passively collecting trash, it has the potential to make a substantial difference in water quality and riparian environment. TGF is working with an engineer team to create the next iteration of Nautilus. It will be installed in the Cherry Creek between Blake Street and Market Street.
Storm drains quickly and efficiently move water away from sidewalks and streets and to our waterways. Unfortunately, any trash or debris on the ground can get washed down a storm drain and end up in our rivers and creeks. The Greenway Foundation supports solutions to help solve this problem.
Stewardship Brings Everyone to the River
I loved volunteering with The Greenway Foundation for Washington University in St. Louis’s day of service. It gave me a chance to meet members in the community that also care about our waterways. You can share all the memes, articles, and long winded diatribes online or you can roll up your sleeves, put on some gloves, and actively work to make a difference. This made me feel more connected and inspired to join as a FRoG (Friend of Greenway) to continue to support this great cause.
