More than 250 friends and supporters joined together in downtown Denver on October 2, 2013, to celebrate The Trust for Public Land's 40 year anniversary—and 32 years of conserving land for people in Colorado.

Spending time in nature—days, hours, or just a few minutes—enriches our lives. It makes us feel rejuvenated. Healthier. Happier. At The Trust for Public Land, we don't just save land—we save land for people to enjoy. Our mission is to create parks and protect land for people, ensuring healthy, livable communities for generations to come. Every park, playground, and public space we help create is an open invitation for everyone to explore, wonder, discover, and play. We're proud to say that we've been connecting communities to the outdoors—and to each other—since 1972. Today, millions of Americans live within a 10-minute walk of a park or natural area we've helped create, and countless more visit every year. With your support, we'll protect the places we all love—and bring even more people closer to nature and the outdoors.
