Celebrate Our River

The Greenway Foundation (TGF) was excited to bring back in person events in 2021 allowing us to, once again, engage local communities with our waterways. 2021 saw the return of both Spring and Fall Stewardship Days, where over 600 volunteers contributed to a cleaner South Platte River. Volunteers contributed nearly 1,500 volunteer hours collecting over 4,000 gallons of debris and spreading over 150 yards of mulch in Denver's riverside parks.



Gala on
the Bridge

2021 marked the 10th anniversary of Gala on the Bridge as over 500 guests honored all past Hero of the River Award winners and celebrated the 2021 Hero of the River, Denver Water. As one of the pillars of TGF’s mission, we were delighted to once again be able to celebrate our urban waterways with our largest Gala to date.

TGF was excited to once again host Reception on the River at STEAM on the Platte! 250 guests braved the chilly weather of late September to enjoy live music, appetizers, and beverages. We were also honored to hear from our feature speaker Randy Ray, the Executive Director of the Central Colorado Water Conservancy District and Board President of the Chatfield Reservoir Mitigation Company, and from Colonel Mark R. Himes, Commander and District Engineer for the Omaha District of the US Army Corps of Engineers. Thank you to the 43 sponsors that made this event possible.
