Participant Opportunities

National Public Lands Day is the nation's largest single-day volunteer event for public lands. Established in 1994 and held annually on the fourth Saturday in September, this celebration brings out thousands of volunteers to help restore and improve public lands around the country. On September 25th Jefferson County Open Space and the City of Wheat Ridge will host a 6-mile-long cleanup effort along Clear Creek on the Peaks to Plaines Trail. Volunteers will help out by spreading native plant seeding, planting native plants, cleaning up debris, removing noxious weeds, pruning vegetation and so much more. Join us at Anderson Park (4355 Field St) at the conclusion of the effort for our post project celebration. Volunteers will be treated to a complimentary lunch, refreshments, giveaways and live music. Special COVID-19 guidelines* To minimize community contact we are asking all participants to bring a mask to the project. Social distancing guidelines will be followed, and a limited supply of hand sanitizer will be supplied by the trail leaders.
