September 25, 2021 was National Public Land Day!

Sept. 25 was National Public Land Day!

South Metro Pheasants Forever and Oxy joined to participate in two events at Barr Lake State Park that day.

The first was the painting of a mural depicting our pollinator plot and the multicultural volunteers responsible for the creation of the pollinator plot.

The artist, Dominic Velando, sketched the mural and guided the volunteers in the painting. Thanks Dominic! The second was adding more pollinators plants to the plot!

Oxy volunteers team for two Barr Lake projects

On Thursday, August 19, PF and Occidental volunteers teamed with Barr Lake staff to complete the next stages of 2 projects.  The first project, an exciting project that will continue for the next month, is the mural project. 

The first step was to build the fencing structure needed as the surface for the mural. The team measured, dug holes, measured again, widened the holes and finally cemented in the upright structure beams for the fence.  It was hard work, and created many laughs as the structure took shape! 

The next steps on the mural will take place in September as the fence is finished and the mural sketched in for the final painting stage on National Public Land day, the 25th of September.  At the same time as the posts were being planted, additional planting was taking place in the Pollinator Plot.  More rabbit brush, coneflowers, and others joined the growing plot.  The additional plants were gently placed by the Oxy team as the PF team helped with both projects!  

It was a great team day.  Thanks Oxy!!

South Metro PF Annual Banquet 2020 – POSTPONED


Dear members and supporters of South Metro Pheasants Forever

This morning during Governor Polis’s 3/13/2020 press conference, he instituted a ban on gatherings of over 250 people, if those events cannot guarantee separation of 6 fee or more between participants. You can find more information here:

With the nature of our event and the size of the meeting space (, service of concessions and food, game play, auctions), it makes it impossible to guarantee 6 feet of separation. As a result, our chapter has “postponed” our annual banquet until the ban is lifted. We will keep everyone updated on when the new date is set.

Thank you,

David King, President

Start planning to attend the 2020 Annual FUNdraising Banquet on Saturday, March 14 at the Denver Marriott South!
