  • Project Send It

Many children in Denver never get the opportunity to get into the mountains that are our city’s majestic backdrop. They see them only from a distance and through the filter of an urban lens. How, they may wonder, does one whose world is concrete, traffic lights and constant noise explore those towering mastiffs of rock and land?

In our increasingly tech-driven urban life, many are losing touch with the natural world and thus losing the ability to love and protect such vital places.
