About the Stewardship Site:
Located just north of the Aurora Reservoir on the East side of Denver, the Pronghorn Natural Area is a newly-accessible open space that offers visitors and nearby residents a welcome respite from urban life with a pristine prairie experience and plentiful opportunities to view the namesake Pronghorn Antelope, Mule and Whitetail Deer, as well as various raptor and other bird species.
About the Volunteer Experience:
On this large project of 100+ people, volunteers ages 12+ will work in small groups of 8-10 people to build a new, natural-surface trail in Aurora's Pronghorn Natural Area. This is a great opportunity to spend time with family, discover new, local places to explore, get your feet wet as a new volunteer, or meet people from across the Front Range! Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
About the Overall Impact:
With only a few established trails, visitors have limited options for exploring the Pronghorn Natural Area. By building the new trail, volunteers will not only expand recreation opportunities in that area, but also add to the limited number of natural-surface hiking opportunities in the Aurora Open Space system and improve public access to preserved, natural places in the face of continued development on the East side of the Denver Metro area.
