Late February and March Guided Hikes and Programs in Larimer County’s Parks and Open Spaces

Nature Notes Club

Larimer County Natural Resources Nature Notes Club is accepting new members throughout the spring.  You can join current members already journaling in the style of John Muir and Aldo Leopold with Volunteer Naturalist Lisa.

The club will have several outings throughout Larimer County’s open spaces, allowing members to immerse themselves in the full range and scope of what these open spaces have to offer.  Club members will receive basic instruction on sketching, ecology, geology, wildlife, and other natural sciences to enhance the experience.  Club members can participate in all sessions, or just a few, whatever fits their schedules.  Please email Rob Novak at rnovak@larimer.org or call (970) 679-4561 for more details and to sign up.
