Bambi Hansen, Vice President

Bambi and her husband Paul have lived in Coal Creek Canyon for 35 years and raised two sons who are now starting families of their own. As founding members of TEG, the Hansen's began with a focus on recycling and wrote educational articles on best practices for conserving resources. This soon evolved into a community recycling effort. The Hansen's coordinated this program for about ten years, diverting tremendous amounts from the landfill. With the advent of single stream recycling their focus changed to education on how and where households and business could do it themsleves. As part of the recycle committee for TEG, Bambi continues to work for a permanent recycling program for the community.

Bambi also Chairs the River Watch team for the Division of Wildlife. Through River Watch, Bambi has sampled Coal Creek water once a month at Twin Spruce and at Plainview sites. In the Fall of 2011, the program was passed on to the Coal Creek School and CC-K-8 students went to a statewide training in order to take over the program and make it permanent part of their science program. Bambi serves on the Stop Gross Dam committee, meets with Denver Water and various other agencies with the hopes of bringing about policies for conservation and awareness regarding our most precious resource, water. She looks forward to the coming year, working with this group of diverse and energetic people.
