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.
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.
Golden does not have an Open Space Commission or Master Plan to provide a formal structure and public guidance for preserving, protecting, and managing the use or future of our open space, leaving these important natural resources increasingly at risk. The risks include increasing urbanization, development pressures, recreational desires, neglect, unauthorized uses and intrusions.
We welcome the support and participation of all who support our mission
