Since 1990, Golden Earth Days has conducted its mission of promoting and demonstrating greater environmental awareness and appreciation in the greater Golden area. This has been achieved through educational and volunteer action-oriented efforts including public outreach, coordinating clean-up efforts in Clear Creek Canyon, tree plantings in the Golden area, and ongoing Clear Creek Trail planning. As a Colorado 501(c)3 non-profit, this small yet mighty grassroots organization “walks the talk” when it comes to sustainability. (Introduce GED members present and CO-Directors Sheila Townsend and Chris Crouse.) They coordinated the inaugural GOLDEN TOUR OF SOLAR HOMES and GREEN EXPO in 2012 and 2013, and are busy planning the next tour, expo and reception for October 4th of this year. Also Golden Earth Days is the recipient of the 2014 Sustainability Award for Community Group from the City of Golden.
