Upcoming events

October 26, 2019:  SPLT is excited to celebrate our progress for the prairie at the 8th Annual Celebration. The gala will be held at History Colorado Center in Denver from 6pm-10pm. All of the proceeds from this vital event help SPLT acquire shortgrass prairie land and protect it permanently for wildlife. This is SPLT’s most important night of the year. Contact Ashleigh Wheeler to volunteer or donate items to the auction.
