Explore Your Parks-Denver, CO

Barr Lake State Park, CO

 Today we spent the morning at Barr Lake State Park to celebrate the Explore Your Parks event. The North Face started this exciting event last year, which encourages communities to come out and explore local parks in their area for FREE! Today's event included kayaking, biking, educational activities, and a special guest appearance from Bigfoot!

Team West spoke to hundreds of kids and families about the importance of Trashing Your Trash while enjoying time outdoors through the interactive game- How Long Does It Last?
We even had a surprise visit by the fabulous Outreach Department of the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics- Dave Winter and Betsy Workman!
Thank you to The North Face for starting this event, one that allows families to get outside and explore their natural, local world!  We look forward to the next Explore Your Parks event.  To find an event near you- click here!
