The Park People



Plant Trees






The Park People's mission is to work with communities to plant trees and improve parks for a healthy, resilient future.

We improve parks by raising funds for park projects, like the reconstruction of the Cranmer Park Sundial & Plaza, and we support the urban forest through our programs: Denver Digs Trees, Mile High Tree Champions, TreeForceCommunity Forester, and the Park Legacy program.


Donate to The Park People this giving season to help us

meet our $50,000 match.

Your contribution supports parks, trees, and Denver's communities.

Upcoming Events

Winter Office Closure

Our offices will be closed December 17th through January 1st for Winter Break.  We will be working remotely on a few projects during this time, we appreciate your patience as response times may be delayed during the closure. 

We wish you all a safe and happy holiday season and look forward to working with our wonderful Denver communities and partners in the New Year.



We are gearing up to begin outreach for our 2023 Denver Digs Trees distribution! 

We will be distributing 1200+ free and low cost trees this year but we need your help to get the word over the next few months. 

Stay tuned for Neighborhood Canvassing and Poster Distribution opportunites!

 Or for more information on Canvassing efforts contact our Community Engagment Coordinator, Loriee Evans:

We will also be looking for Digital Advocates to help us promote the program on Social Media- do you have a strong following in Denver?  You can help get the word out on how to get free or low cost trees. Digital Communty Outreach is a great way for you to get involved from home!
