Jeffo Open Space lands grant for programs to connect with youths

The Be Wild, Jeffco coalition of Jeffco Open Space has received a $75,000 grant to encourage youths to experience the outdoors.

The funding from Great Outdoors Colorado is aimed at creating programs and expanding parks to improve access for young people, said Open Space spokeswoman Thea Rock.

Many Jeffco youngsters live in areas with gaps in nature connections, Rock said — similar to people who live in “food deserts” that lack readily accessible grocery stores.

“Maybe there is no park in their neighborhood,” she said.
