Owls & Food Trucks & Music, Oh My!

After Dark, the Outdoor Lab Foundation’s annual fundraiser and “friend”raiser is right around the corner. Have you marked your calendar for one of our community's most beloved events of the year?

Between a silent and live auction (item previews coming soon), live music, food trucks, a special whiskey and bacon pairing and other special surprises (like the HawkQuest) along the way, this is a must-attend event. 

 Please join us. Click Here for Tickets.


New Spirit Wear Logo. Surprise Models. Same Commitment to Students & Community

Thanks to Dr. Glass, Superintendent of Jeffco Public Schools and Mayor Adam Paul of Lakewood for helping us unveil the news!

“We just knew it was time,” says Paige Brophy, our Deputy Executive Director. “The 6th grade students’ transition from  elementary schools to middle schools is complete, and we wanted to commemorate the occasion!” 

Spirit Wear is available now for donation.

Sign up NOW for Outdoor Lab Spirit Wear Delivery!

Students love getting their Outdoor Lab Spirit Wear - hoodies, t-shirts, beanies and more. We deliver the ordered gear to each school the week before students go up to Outdoor Lab, but we need help!

We're seeking volunteers to pick up gear from our Wheat Ridge office and deliver it to the schools. Sign up for as many schools as you'd like!

Volunteers pick up their gear delivery on Tuesday/ Wednesday and deliver items to the school before the end of day Wednesday. If you have any questions, give us a call at  720-403-8241. 

Thank you for your help!


Chook Chicken Chose Us!

They're more than a neighborhood chicken shop, they're a force for good.

This month, Outdoor Lab Foundation is a recipient for their "Chook Community Chest", where 1% of their sales goes back to the community.

Every time you dine with them, you get a community coin. Then you get to cast your vote.

HERE'S THE KICK: the organization with the top vote gets 50% of the money and the other two get 25%.

 If you're going to dine out anyway, give Chook a chance!

They also have delicious veggie options!
