Pitch in and help maintain and improve South Platte Park, an 880-acre natural open space park in Littleton. We meet a couple of times a month and perform a variety of projects to improve the habitat and the visitor experience.

Typical work days include pulling weeds, mulching trees and shrubs, and building bird boxes, and maintaining a native plant garden. We work about three hours at a time on Wednesday or Thursday mornings. Occasionally there will be opportunities on Saturday morning as well.
