PLAN Jeffco 2015 Annual Dinner
with the County Commissioners to Celebrate 43 years of Conserving Jeffco’s Open Spaces

"Celebrating Jeffco Land Trusts"

Date: September 21, 2015

Location: The Vista at Applewood Golf Course, 14001 W 32nd Ave, Golden, CO 80401

Honorees: Clear Creek Land Conservancy, Colorado Open Lands and Mountain Area Land Trust.

Their efforts have protected over 11,000 acres in Jeffco and over 290,000 acres in Colorado.
For this we all owe them a big THANK YOU!

The September 21 dinner in the Vista Room at the Applewood Golf Course was enjoyed by the almost 100 attendees. The dinner was also attended by the three County Commissioners and Tom Hoby, the Open Space Program Director who joined with PLAN Jeffco in honoring the Mountain Area Land Trust, Clear Creek Land Conservancy and Colorado Open Lands. All of these have been actively protecting Jeffco open space lands and two of these also focus their efforts on preserving lands throughout Colorado.

Representatives of the land trusts received framed photographs of properties that they have conserved. Peter Morales, a member of the PLAN Jeffco board, volunteered his services as photographer.

Claire Riegelman received the award for the Clear Creek Land Conservancy. The conservancy has protected lands on both sides of Clear Creek.
