John Denver Sanctuary is located on the edge of downtown Aspen along the banks of the Roaring Fork River and adjacent to Theatre Aspen. It’s an ideal location for this beautiful garden but not many know how hard it “works” – by using proper soil and vegetation, this man-made wetland reduces pollutants in the Roaring Fork River by 96% from a third of the City storm drain system – that’s the equivalent of about 15 dump trucks worth of material each year!
Join April Long, Clean River Program Manager for the City of Aspen, and Christina Medved from Roaring Fork Conservancy to tour this beautiful park and get an inside look at this state-of-the-art filtration system, modeled after Mother Nature’s ability to “clean” – all while honoring one of the best musicians of our time!
