Together they will share more than 30 years of experience on the South Platte River Greenway development in metropolitan Denver, Colorado. They will present an overview of the history of greenway development along the South Platte River and along tributary stream corridors and how greenway development has helped to make trails part of the everyday life of residents in the Denver metro area.
