Please join TCLF at a twilight, private reception at the Denver Botanic Gardens that showcases the region’s first outdoor exhibition by celebrated artist Dale Chihuly.

The new What's Out There Denver Guide to the Mile High City's diverse designed landscape legacy will be unveiled during the reception. The guide, produced by TCLF in tandem with ASLA National and the Colorado Chapter, the University of Colorado Denver College of Architecture and Planning and with support from Design Workshop, is a free, searchable online introduction to more than 50 sites in the Mile High City; and is the preface to What’s Out There® Weekend Denver slated for Fall 2015. 

The launch event, following the daylong Rocky Mountain Mod excursion, will culminate with the presentation of the 2014 Stewardship Excellence Award to Don and Carolyn Etter, for their decades of service promoting stewardship and preservation of Denver’s great park system.
