Kip Cheroutes, top congressional aide to U.S. Representative Patricia Schroeder from 1978 – 1994 who supported efforts to clean up what became a Superfund site, will talk about the history of the wildlife-based land use solution to the cleanup and the 1990 legislation he helped conceive to turn the arsenal into an urban wildlife refuge managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
Katherine Kramer, manager of the GoWild Northeast Metro Coalition, will share how they are helping 40,000 youth from the four neighboring diverse communities around the refuge connect and engage to the outdoors in ways that are inspirational, transformational, and meaningful.
The tour will also include a stop at the Visitor Center so you can explore the interactive exhibit hall and shop at Nature’s Nest Books and Gifts, managed by PLA member, Friends of the Front Range National Wildlife Refuges.
