Welcome!

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, Community Forester, and the Park Legacy program.

Upcoming Events

State Farm, in parternship with Arbor Day Foundation, will plant trees at Sloan's Lake Park through our Mile High Tree Champions program. As State Farm Vice President of Administrative Services, Jenny Greminger, says, "Trees play a vital role in the stability of our communities and their resilience against disaster. Planting, in a strategic way, will help areas potentially better withstand future challenges."

This workshop will provide a brief historic context of Denver's forest, familiarize you with tree classification and identification methods, and introduce common trees in Denver. You will also learn about these trees' characteristics, requirements, and uses. Field component included.

Our Autumn 2021 Community Forester workshops are full, but click here to learn more about the program and sign up for a notification for future registrations.
