Planting native species during Xcel Energy Day of Service at the Wetland Park on Sand Creek in Commerce City.

Preparing to cage trees to prevent beaver damage

We have just two more volunteer days scheduled for 2018, Saturday November 3 and Saturday December 1, and we hope you’ll join the growing list of folks who are eager to spend a couple of hours with like-minded, generous, friendly folks to improve our Greenway trail and the adjacent riparian areas. For more information, email Courtney at or visit our calendar page.

Over the year, we’ve pulled and girdled invasive species, planted native species along our Sand Creek, made milkweed seed bombs, repaired our trail surface, protected trees from beaver damage, painted park shelters and trailhead amenities, removed flood debris and trash from along our trail. As a result, our Greenway is healthier and certainly more attractive! A hearty thank you to all the volunteers who’ve shared a Saturday morning with us! 

We thank our donors who have supported this program for many years and are helping it grow.

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.
