The What - Our Mission Statement
Stewards of Golden Open Space is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit formed by Golden residents to provide the community vision and voice to understand, protect and preserve Golden’s precious open space resources, their assets and the values they represent with transparency and inclusivity.
From the Golden Vision 2030 -
"We value the natural beauty of unique geologic features, extended stretches of the foothills, and unbroken stretches of natural environments that define Golden as a place."
Residents of Golden consistently express strong support, appreciation and priorities for our open spaces, as important Golden resources. Much of this open space contains wildlife, vegetation, historical, cultural, geological, hydrological, archeological and other elements, like buffers from urban landscapes, that are valued by the Golden community.
As a result of Stewards' advocacy the City of Golden is now beginning the development of an Open Space Master Plan to provide a formal structure and public guidance for preserving, protecting, and managing the use or future of our open space. The risks to these resources include increasing urbanization, development pressures, recreational desires, neglect, unauthorized uses and intrusions. Development of an open space master plan has been a major goal of Stewards since its inception.
We welcome the support and participation of all who support our mission. See our accomplishments!
