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.
