CCC featured in Westword article on Mountain Parks

Congratulations to the Denver Mountain Parks Foundation on the thorough article on all their new projects, just published in Westword on May 9, 2018.
     Denver Mountain Parks Are Ready for Their Close-Up, by Margaret Jackson.

In addition to background and overall coverage on planned park improvements, much of the article features the City’s new partnership with HistoriCorps, an organization modeled somewhat after the CCC, which will assist in park projects and be housed in renovated barracks at the Mount Morrison CCC camp formerly occupied by those who built the Red Rocks Amphitheatre, among other park projects.

You can arrange to tour the CCC camp by contacting Denver Mountain Parks Ranger Dennis Brown (dennis.brown AT denvergov DOT org, or leave a message at 720.865.0900.)
