National Public Lands Day – 2021

In celebration of National Public Lands Day, we partnered with 10 Barrel BrewingVámonos Outside and Discover Your Forest to host an inclusive stewardship project. About 25 volunteers joined us to re-naturalize a one mile trail leading from South Twin to North Twin Lake.

We worked hard, made new friends and relished in holding space for our LGBTQ+ and Latinx community members on our Public Lands. Thank you to everyone who took part! Here are some of the highlights.
