Launching “BookWorms” Nature Book Club

August 26, 2020

We are thrilled to announce a new program for readers–our nature book club starting in October–a partnership program with City of Aurora Parks, Recreation and Open Space. Two options are available to readers: an in-person club meeting at Morrison Nature Center at Star K Ranch on the Greenway in Aurora (on October 10) , and a virtual club option via Zoom (on October 14). Both options are free, though registration is required.

Trees are the theme for October; the first book we’ll read is The Overstory by Richard Powers, a best-seller and winner of the 2019 Pulitzer Prize in Fiction and many other honors.

We’ve created a reading guide with discussion questions, a “book flight” of other great books about trees, video and “experience” recommendations.  Download it here!

To Register:
Go to www.AuroraGov.Org/Nature, Click the “Click Here To Register for Nature Programs”, Select “Morrison Nature Center “or Search “Bookworm”

We’re grateful for our partnership with the City of Aurora Parks, Recreation and Open Space for developing this program with us. Thanks to our city partner, Kristin Memmott, City of Aurora Natural Resource Specialist for leading the club with our Executive Director, Beth Nobles.

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.
