Groundwork Denver recently celebrated a decade of “Community Action with Environmental Results.” For the 10th Anniversary celebration Groundwork Denver hosted a thank you party for partners, clients, volunteers, donors and staff. The thank you party was a way to show appreciation for the creation, support and continued longevity of Groundwork Denver.
Guests enjoyed music played by party DJ and Groundwork Denver staff member James Harris, and delicious vegan and vegetarian foods and desserts with the company of friends and associates. Upon leaving the celebration seedling evergreen trees were given to attendees as a symbol of Groundwork Denver’s continued growth as a resource to the community and encourage a sustainable relationship between attendees and Groundwork Denver. In honor of the attendees that could not commit to planting a tree, the remaining seedling trees were to be planted in burn areas from the summers forest fires or in local parks.
On Friday, October 19th Groundwork Denver partnered with Standley Lake Regional Park in Westminster to plantremaining seedling evergreen trees from the 10th anniversary celebration in the park’s campground.
Standley Lake Regional Park is a 3,000- acre park located in unincorporated Jefferson County. The park is open year-round to the public for a number of recreational activities from camping, to boating, to walking trails since 1970.
Groundwork Denver’s Green Team planted a total of 20 evergreen seedling trees at the park. These trees are in honor of the 10 years Groundwork Denver has continually made an impact on our community through environmental stewardship and responsibility.
