Strategic Partnerships for Healthy Open Space
We create strategic partnerships with organizations that share our mission to enhance existing open space and help nature and wildlife thrive in our community. CHLP partners with local government and nonprofit partners to enhance existing parks and trails, raise awareness of the importance of open space and nature corridors, and support healthy and thriving nature in the Village.
CHLP creates local impact and supports smart land stewardship by:
- Providing nonprofit resources to enhance existing parks and open space;
- Bringing scientific and technical expertise to our work;
- Leveraging resources for strategic opportunities;
- Making grants to our conservation education partners to expand access to nature.
Our 2021 Bee Project is an example of strategic partnerships for healthy open space. This initiative is focused on supporting healthy bees and native pollinators as critical components of our nature community. We are partnering with the City of Cherry Hills Village to focus the field research project and beekeeping at the 17.5 acre Quincy Farm, partnering with experts from the University of Denver and the People & Pollinator Action Network to assess and improve native habitat, and engaging scientists from the Butterfly Pavilion on how local beekeeping can benefit our entire community. We hope to gain insights on how our community can support healthy bee and pollinator populations in backyards and on public land through good habitat, native plants, and careful pesticide use.
Other strategic partnerships have included:
- Grants to the City to fund native gardens and plants at Quincy Farm and John Meade Park;
- Collaboration and a grant to High Line Canal Conservancy for local educational trail signage;
- Partnering with Denver Audubon on education programs at Quincy Farm and City parks, and making grants to their programs to expand access to nature education for youth.
We partner with organizations that share our mission to create local impact that will:
- Enhance existing open space
- Bring scientific and technical expertise to our work
- Leverage resources for strategic investments
- Connect underserved youth to nature
