The Cherry Hills Land Preserve is pleased to announce the establishment of a Community Stewardship Grants program. The purpose of the program is to engage citizens of the Cherry Hills Village Community, especially students and young persons, in activities that promote the protection and conservation of the natural open lands and the rural character we have come to enjoy. We are grateful for the generous financial support from the neighborhood in the past, and we are pleased to have an opportunity to invest some of those proceeds back into the community.
Typical grants may include funds awarded to one of our local schools to do an environmental research study on native plants, wetlands research, or other scientific learning study and experiments. It may include funds for student research on historic structures within our community, support for identified City projects, trail signage, or perhaps trail clean-up projects. For example, students may wish to study a native bird habitat, and install and monitor birdhouse sites in a local park. Or a community group may be interested in identifying and providing signage on native plant species located on a trail adjacent to their neighborhood.
