Northeastern Colorado (Denver, CO)

Children’s Corridor Project

The US Forest Service Peaks to Prairies: A Children’s Forest Corridor is based on the concept of creating a network of natural places for kids to physically and educationally engage. GP RED developed a 5 year framework to guide the Forest Service in the Rocky Mountain Region in developing a comprehensive strategy for help children access and experience the rich natural resources in the Denver metro area.

The US Forest Service convened a broad set of partners to introduce this place‐based corridor concept in hopes of creating a sustainable, focused initiative that celebrates the diversity of Colorado’s natural landscapes and creates mechanisms for interaction and education along the way. By using the South Platte River as the natural connector or corridor, the vision of celebrating a series of outdoor spaces that highlight our public lands and inspire engagement was created.
