The Greenway Leadership Corps took advantage of Colorado’s sunny winter weather last week, and went ice skating at the Downtown Denver Rink at Skyline Park! A big thanks to The Downtown Denver Partnership for providing an outdoor opportunity for community and fun during these winter months! We were joined by many familiar and new students, including an outdoor leadership student group from Westminster High School!
Greenway Foundation Supporters and Advocates:
Colorado Trout Unlimited (CTU) and The Greenway Foundation (TGF) are pleased to announce that the Colorado Trout Unlimited (CTU) 2020 River Stewardship Award is being awarded to TGF’s Executive Director, Jeff Shoemaker. As Executive Director of The Greenway Foundation, Jeff has led a true revival of Denver’s urban waterways for close to four decades. From promoting parks and responsible development along greenways, to raising funds for the Chatfield Reservoir environmental pool benefitting South Platte River stream flows, to developing environmental education programs that engage thousands of Denver youth every year, The Greenway Foundation, under Jeff’s leadership, has embodied the concept of river stewardship for an urban community.
The CTU River Stewardship Award will be presented during the course of CTU’s 2020 Stewardship Gala on Thursday evening, March 5, 2020. This annual gathering at Mile High Station in Denver is a fun evening of food and drink and raising funds for Colorado TU’s conservation work around our beautiful state!
If you are interested in being a part of this special evening honoring Jeff and TGF, the CTU Stewardship Gala regularly sells out early! Learn more by visiting this link. We hope to see you on March 5, 2020 as we celebrate Colorado’s rivers and fisheries and honor Jeff Shoemaker as CTU’s 2020 River Stewardship Award winner!
