Thank you for joining us for a super successful SSKO GO Day this June! Check out some of the great event photos on Facebook and mark your calendars for Saturday, June 13, 2020 for the next shindig at Garfield Lake Park!
Get Outdoors Day Colorado and SouthWest Denver Coalition have joined forces to host Safe Summer Kick Off on Get Outdoors Day (SSKO GO). Our first annual event was held on Saturday, June 8, 2019, at Garfield Lake Park from 10am to 3pm.
This free, family-friendly event is designed to promote access to healthy and safe outdoor spaces, support under-resourced communities, and celebrate nature exploration.
Public lands link local communities to recreation opportunities across the West. These outdoor spaces also act as a classroom where kids can get their hands dirty, learn about nature and just have fun. Get Outdoors Colorado and SouthWest Denver Coalition aim to foster and facilitate an educational experience to encourage participants of all cultures, skill levels, and ages to interact with the outdoors.
We look to provide an intentional, inclusive, and safe outdoor space to explore adventure activities such as swimming, fishing, hiking, climbing, biking, boating, navigation, nature identification, connection to basic resources, and more. In addition, this event will host live entertainment, free food, snacks, prize drawings, youth/children activities, and a career and family resource fair.
