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, TreeForce, Community Forester, and the Park Legacy program.
A generous donor has pledged a $75,000 dollar-for-dollar match.
We need YOUR help to get there.
