About

"Preserve the past and secure the future" for recreational gold prospecting. An all volunteer 501 c 3 organization, GU has partnered with The Greenway Foundation to teach middle schoolers to pan for gold in urban Denver while learning the rich history of our great state and connecting with the great outdoors.

GU is leading a growing group to aquire and preserve the Snowstorm Dredge near Fairplay CO. for Park County.

GU is working with Jefferson County to preserve the last publicly accessable portion of the Arapahoe bar. Arguably the most historic ground in Colorado, the Arapahoe bar was described as "the womb from which Jefferson County was born" and also described as the place from which John H Gregory and George A Jackson set out from to make their famous gold strikes which launched the great Pikes Peak Gold Rush of 1859.
