Safe Summer Kick Off on Get Outdoors Day

Safe Summer Kick Off on Get Outdoors Day (SSKO GO Day) partners believe in building community health, wealth, and safety. Every day, we are motivated by our connections to each other and to the natural world to do better for ourselves and for each other. We come together at Garfield Lake Park in June to celebrate community and to build community.

Although we are unable to all physically come together at the park this summer for our annual festival, SouthWest Denver Coalition, Metro Denver Nature Alliance, Denver Parks & Recreation, and our broad coalition of partners are excited to be working together again to help you enjoy a safe, healthy, and happy summer that includes loads of nearby nature!

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made significant modifications to the annual event to keep organizers, volunteers, participants, and neighbors safe. Now more than ever it is important to connect with and serve our community, getting everyone the resources, information, and opportunities they need to get outside safely and cope with the health, safety, economic, and other effects of the pandemic. 

We are working with community partners to find a host location for a drive-thru / walk-up community resource fair on June 13th, at which free cloth face masks, healthy snacks, activity kits for kids, and outdoor recreation gear like fishing poles and frisbees will be provided to families. Stay tuned for details on time and location!
