Leave No Trace Spotlight: City of Westminster Parks and Open Space

Join Leave No Trace in Westminster, CO – June 6-8, 2024

We hand-select nominated outdoor spaces that need our collective care and attention. By designating them as Spotlights, we’re rallying the local community to step up, join forces with Leave No Trace, and make a meaningful impact that can revitalize and protect these special places where we recreate, enjoy one another’s company, and elevate our health physically, mentally and emotionally. 

City of Westminster Parks and Open Space has been selected as a 2024 Leave No Trace Spotlight. The Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Team will be at Westminster Hills Open Space June 6-8, collaborating with hosts and partners on a variety of programs including stewardship projects, workshops, and community outreach.
