Plans for Xcel Energy Day of Service on the Greenway announced

August 7, 2019

Our Sand Creek Greenway is again hosting a volunteer work day project at the Commerce City Wetland Park for the 2019 Xcel Energy Day of Service, Saturday, September 7, from 8 am to 11 am.

Advance sign-up for this event is required, and can be done here.

At the time of posting, there are still openings for volunteers for this most popular day. The Xcel Energy Day of Service began several years ago to honor the anniversary of September 11, 2001. Over the years, the event has grown to involve thousands of Xcel Energy employees and customers as well as their families and friends in service projects across the state.

And over the years, the volunteers have contributed greatly to the health and appearance of the Greenway at the Wetland Park. Park structures have been painted, trees have been protected from beaver damage, native species have been planted, milkweed seed bombs have been made and hundreds and hundreds of bags of trash have been collected and removed from this special place.

We thank all the volunteers over the years who have devoted their time, energy and determination to make our Greenway and the Wetland Park a better place for metro area citizens to recreate and enjoy nature. Thanks to Xcel Energy for your leadership in creating this special day, and our other donors supporting volunteerism. Together, we’ve made a difference!

Take Action!

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.
