Walden, Colorado

We're thrilled that Walden, one of the newest additions to the Heart & Soul network, is off and running! Be sure to check back in the future - we’ll post updates and links as they progress in their Heart & Soul journey.

The Town of Walden is in Jackson County (known as “North Park”), a remote and breathtakingly beautiful valley surrounded by mountains on the Colorado/Wyoming border. The area has historically depended economically on its natural resources and is currently known for natural gas extraction, as well as for its world-class fishing, hunting and wildlife viewing. North Park Heart & Soul has engaged residents to work collectively to create a vision for Jackson County that ensures the Soul of the community thrives.

What We Do

Developed and field-tested over a decade in partnership with small cities and towns, Community Heart & Soul is a proven model for engaging a community in shaping its future.
By following this four phase, step-by-step model, residents are able to bring the community together to chart a course forward that recognizes the unique character of the place and the emotional connection of the people who live there.
