Cache la Poudre Youth Inspire Initiative

In 2016, the City of Greeley Parks Division engaged several local youth to help gather and analyze public input on its parks and trails. The youth, along with the Poudre Learning Center, Greeley/Evans School District 6, Colorado Youth Outdoors, the Poudre Heritage Alliance and the Weld County Department of Public Health, held several planning meetings throughout the area and summarized their findings into a final report. This summary will be a resource for future outdoor recreational planning.
