Event Details

 

Celebrate Earth Day with Jeffco Open Space! 

 

BACKGROUND:  On Saturday, April 22, 2017 we will celebrate Earth Day giving back to our public lands. A natural haven amid a suburban neighborhood, Crown Hill Park is a place to retreat, admire abundant birdlife and enjoy a wide range of recreation. The wetland in the northwest corner, Kestrel Pond, is certified as a National Urban Wildlife Refuge for its value to a variety of migrating waterfowl. Kestrel Pond is closed during peak nesting season from March 1 to June 30 except for official Open Space business or the occasional naturalist-led Nature Program or School Program offered by Lookout Mountain Nature Center.

WHAT YOU’RE DOING IS IMPORTANT: Because of the parks interface within an urban corridor, Crown Hill receives a lot of use throughout the year, which can have negative impacts on surrounding vegetation and wildlife. Volunteers will lend a hand with important spring maintenance in the park. Work will include, but may not be limited to trail restoration and overall park cleanup.

 WORK WILL BE DEPENDENT ON WEATHER.

**LUNCH WILL BE PROVIDED. PLEASE NOTIFY JCOS IF YOU HAVE ANY DIETARY RESTRICTIONS**
