Mission Statement

The Park People works to preserve, enhance and advocate for Denver's parks, recreation resources, open space and urban forest.


We are a private, non-profit organization that was founded in Denver in 1969. Since that time, we have devoted ourselves to improving the quality of life for communities throughout Denver by protecting and enhancing our green spaces and urban trees.

We primarily engage volunteers through our Denver Digs Trees program, which provides free and affordable trees to Denver residents. We also cultivate knowledgeable and skilled volunteers through our Community Forester program, which engages volunteers in planting and stewarding the city forest.

With a small staff of 2.5, we are blessed to have an amazing team of dedicated and passionate volunteers who make our work possible and welcome you to join us!

I've volunteered with The Park People for Denver Digs events and collaborated with them on a community outreach event called Parking Day. It's been a pleasure every time. They are so fun to work with!
