Fire Mitigation

Our thoughts are with all of those who have been impacted by the devastating Marshall Fire. We are grateful to North Metro Fire and the first responders who worked to keep Broomfield Safe.

While all future wildfires cannot be avoided, there are some things you can do. The National Fire Protection Association has some materials for preparing your home for a wildfire

If you have tree branches that need recycling, please visit the Tree Branch Recycling Center, which includes the hours of operation and details about the tree branch recycling program.

ANNUAL CALL FOR DONATIONS

Do you sometimes wonder what happens to the various donations you make each year?

Your Broomfield Open Space Foundation donations are turned into EXPERIENCES! Read on to find out how.

● Have you read the new signs installed on the Industrial Lane side of SHEP’S CROSSING? You can learn so much about Broomfield by reading these signs. And your BOSF donations helped fund them!

● Have you visited METZGER FARM OPEN SPACE on Lowell and 120th? Your BOSF donations have created a guide to the farm’s trails, history, and wildlife!

Did you attend the FISHING DERBY AT TOM FROST RESERVOIR? Your BOSF donations supplied the fish for Broomfield’s youngsters to catch!

 

 

● Have you attended in person or virtually the SPEAKERS SERIES? The 2021 speakers opened our eyes to carbon, pollinators, owls, coyotes, public lands, and indigenous history. Your donations have helped sponsor these speakers so they could bring this knowledge to us.
● Did you visit our tent at BROOMFIELD DAYS? Your donations helped fund displays to show our visitors where Broomfield’s open spaces and trails are located, what wildlife they may see, and what opportunities are available to be involved in maintaining our open spaces.
● Have you attended Broomfield’s NATURE PROGRAMS? Your donations help fund the cost to get the word out about these events that immerse our children in the wonderful world of nature.

Have you walked, hiked, or biked one of Broomfield’s trails? For 25 years BOSF has been installing perches, signage, and dog stations in Broomfield’s open spaces to keep them attractive to people and wildlife. This has only been possible because of your donations!

Open Space Speaker Series Presents: Insight Series: Film Screening, Only the Earth and the Mountains and Panel Discussion

Join us on December 1 at 7 pm at the Broomfield Auditorium.

Only the Earth and the Mountains by filmmaker Elleni Sclavenitis interrogates the narrative of settler colonialism in the American West by white pioneers and its implications to society today by examining the repercussions of the Sand Creek Massacre, in which more than 200 Cheyenne and Arapaho people were murdered by U.S. Cavalry troops on November 29, 1864. In speaking to the survivors’ descendants, it becomes clear that this event is a living, perpetual loss—one that should not be forgotten.

After the thirty minute film, stay for a panel discussion with members of the Arapaho and Cheyenne nations.

Presented by Creative Broomfield, the City and County of Broomfield Open Space and Trails, and the Broomfield Open Space Foundation.
