WHO WE ARE

We connect people to our waterways!

The Greenway Fund continues to expand its impact by channeling the collective voice of our community.  We advocate for creating innovative transformation of our regional waterways through the development of greenway trails and water access, connecting the community to our waterways through recreational opportunities and an enhanced natural experience, and protecting valuable environmental assets in partnership with local government, non-profits and businesses. What does this look like?

  • Convening regional conversations and initiatives related to the waterways
  • Economic and community development initiatives such as Envision Shooks Run
  • Promoting watershed health and resiliency through low impact development, sustainability measure and decreasing non-point source  (NPS) contamination.
  • Creek Week 2017 is on pace to be our biggest year ever with upwards of 3,000 volunteers throughout the region making it the biggest water clean-up and restoration event in Colorado
  • Identifying and bringing funding into the Front Range and Pikes Peak Region for water based infrastructure projects. This includes careful examination and application for international and domestic grant opportunities, state granting programs, federal granting programs, and philanthropic interests.
  • Key leadership partner in the Watershed Outreach Collaborative (WOC) and the Brewshed Alliance

WHY WATERWAYS

Waterways Create Life

Water plays a crucial role in sustaining and enhancing our environment and quality of life. All living creatures are drawn to areas near and along rivers and streams.

Waterways Connect People

Our creek corridors provide a place for people to gather for events, recreation, learning and playing. Waterway destinations increase tourism, employment and add economic value.

People Protect Waterways

Well maintained waterways provide for the health and safety of our community, wildlife, and our downstream neighbors.
