August 11 Volunteer Work Day and Benefit at Cheluna Brewery!

August 1, 2018

Mark your calendar for a great day on Saturday, August 11! 

We’ll start the day with a volunteer work effort at the Smith Road trailhead on the Greenway in Denver. (Get there by turning onto Smith Road from Havana, and traveling west to the trailhead sign and large parking lot!) At 10 am, we’ll start with bagels and coffee, and a brief naturalist talk by our friends from Denver Parks and Recreation, Monique Fair and Vicki Vargas-Madrid. We’ll work on projects to help the Greenway and riparian area in this Stapleton section of our creek and trail–removing invasive plants, bolstering native species, trail repair and cleanup, and graffiti eradication.

We welcome all volunteers: individuals, families (children over five, please), retirees, students, groups. Please email Courtney at for more information, or if you would like to attend. (Please note, our offices are closed August 1-8, and it may take some time to respond to your email, but we will!)

We’ll work on the trail until noon, and then reconvene at Stanley Marketplace’s Cheluna Brewing Co., where our generous brewery friends have created a special menu for us. Order from that menu from 12:30 and 2:30 and 20% of the proceeds will be donated back to Sand Creek Greenway to support our nonprofit mission! There will be live music and lots of fun!

Please join us for the morning’s and/or the afternoon’s festivities!

We thank our friends and partners who are each contributing to this special day–Runners Roost Stapleton, the Stapleton Sustainable Neighborhood Group, Groundwork Denver, Denver Parks and Recreation and many more!  Corporate sponsors contributing to this volunteer day include Suncor and Xcel Energy.


Take Action!

Sand Creek Regional Greenway Partnership

About the Greenway

The Sand Creek Regional Greenway is a jewel in the necklace of trails that has made Denver a national model for linked trail systems.

This 14-mile public greenway connects the High Line Canal in Aurora, Colorado with the South Platte River Greenway in Commerce City. Along the way, it passes through northeast Denver and the new Stapleton community.

The Sand Creek Regional Greenway is open every day from dawn until dusk. Runners, walkers, nature viewers, horseback riders, and leashed dogs are encouraged to enjoy the trail. We invite you to become acquainted with our wilderness in the city.
