The Cherry Hills Land Preserve was reminded time and time again this year that nature can be an amazing teacher. Nature provides rhythm of the seasons, connects us with beauty in our surroundings, and engages our 5 senses. A daily dose of nature keeps us grounded and calm. We connect people to nature in Cherry Hills Village by creating opportunities for curiosity, fun, and discovery in the outdoors. Your support helps us expand our education programs and land stewardship efforts to preserve the local open space we love and inspire future conservation action.
In 2021, your support helped us:
- Provide 18 education programs for the community
- Launch the 2021 Bee Project, our first annual conservation impact challenge
- Create a bee sanctuary and beekeeping program at Quincy Farm
- Help save Quincy Farm as a community treasure
- Support inclusive access to environmental education with a grant to Breakthrough Kent Denver
2021 marks our 16th year of protecting open space and providing environmental education in CHV. We engaged over 450 residents with our education programs and introduced many new families to natural community treasures like Little Dry Creek and Quincy Farm through programs like Kids in the Creek, community beekeeping, and the Trail Walk. We also welcomed three new Board Members to deepen the experience and expertise to guide our organization into 2022 and beyond. We are thrilled that Judith Judd, Kevin Schwall, and Linda Behr have joined the CHLP team.
We hope you will consider supporting CHLP in your year-end giving. A generous donor will match all donations up to $10,000 through December 31st, so you can double your impact by giving today. Thank you!
Happy Holidays to all, and may you spend time outdoors this holiday season.
