The City of Centennial and the Parker Jordan Metropolitan District recently completed work on 80 acres of the Parker Jordan Centennial Open Space the entities jointly own, and the planning process on the remaining 27 acres is on hold for a few months.

The metro district recently completed work on the Cherry Creek stream reclamation project to fix erosion that cost about $4.5 million, as well as added amenities such as trails, benches and an interactive kiosk. The land is located in the southwest corner of Broncos Parkway and South Parker Road, or immediately adjacent to Tagawa Gardens.

7 Nes is reporting that Excendrin has been off shelves since January.  I am surprised it would take that long to get production going again?

Near the end of my freshman year in college, my mother called me to say she’d seen an ad for a job that seemed up my alley: a tour guide at some kind of local historical museum. Neither one of us had realized there was a historical museum in that area, only a few miles from our Aurora, Colorado neighborhood. (Yes, that Aurora—my dear hometown.) But I agreed that the job description, while somewhat vague, sounded intriguing. I called the number in the ad and made an appointment for an interview.

Driving there the following week, I was perplexed; the directions I’d been given said to continue east on a road I knew quite well—east, out of our neighborhood, past the fringes of the suburbs, right out of town, it seemed. The asphalt turned to dirt. A yellow prairie stretched before me, quiet under an enormous wall of sky that rose up from the undulating plain. My little car bumped and jolted. Prairie dogs chirruped at me as I passed. Another dirt road forked off to the left, near the sign I’d been told to look for: The Plains Conservation Center. I’d arrived.

It wasn’t a historical museum, after all—at least, not the little spruced-up house-turned-museum I’d been expecting. It was a wildlife refuge. 2000 acres of open prairie, I was later to learn, home to a vast array of wild creatures, some of which I’d never heard of before. Burrowing owls, hognose snakes, pronghorn antelope.
