Three organizations are joining forces to produce a public fund-raiser to support programs that connect children and families to nature. The Party for Parks will be held at the Red Rocks Visitor Center from 6 to 10 p.m. April 5. Tickets are $50 at www.jeffcooutdoors.org.
The Jefferson County Outdoors Foundation, the Denver Mountain Parks Association and Great Outdoors Colorado are sponsoring the gala, which celebrates multiple anniversaries. Proceeds benefit nonprofit Jeffco Outdoors, formerly known as the Jeffco Open Space Foundation.
