Ecological Stewardship| Restoration at Chatfield Farms
Rebecca Hufft, Ph.D., Denver Botanic Gardens

The mission of Denver Botanic Gardens Chatfield Farms is to inspire the public to be good stewards of the environment by connecting people to our past, present and future relationships with native plants of the Rocky Mountain Region. We are starting a new initiative to restore habitats and expand community awareness of the diversity of wildlife that depends on areas like Chatfield.
