For Immediate Release:
Jefferson County Open Space is hosting their Spring Trails Talk public forum with the theme of encouraging park visitors to “Know Before You Go”. Many of the topics center around being prepared before visiting a park, and knowing your alternatives—resulting in a safe and enjoyable outdoor experience.
This event will be held on Wednesday, April 29, from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m., at the American Mountaineering Center, 710 10th St, Golden, CO 80401 in the first floor conference rooms.
The topics at the Trails Talk will include the Trail Difficulty Ratings, the Annual Trails Assessment, upcoming trail projects, the Jeffco Outdoors Regional Map Series, and an update on the designated-use trails working group. Following a presentation, staff experts will be available for one-on-one questions on a variety of topics.
Jeffco Open Space was founded as a land conservation organization in 1972 to preserve land, protect park and natural resources and provide healthy nature-based experiences. We are funded with a one-half of one percent sales tax that has preserved over 53,000 acres and created 28 regional parks and 230 miles of trails in Jefferson County.
