January Guided Hikes and Programs in Larimer County’s Parks and Open Spaces

Critter Scene Investigations

Two sets of tracks dot the fresh snow leading into a gully.  Suddenly the tracks trail off into an area of disturbed snow, and only one set of tracks leaves the area.  What happened there?  Join volunteer naturalists on snowy mornings to investigate animal behaviors using basic tracking skills during this fun interactive program.  Programs will be held when conditions are good for tracking at Devil’s Backbone Open Space, Horsetooth Mountain Open Space, and Eagle’s Nest Open Space.  You will receive email notification the night before a program is to be held with details on where to meet and what to bring.  This is an excellent program for kids! If you are interested please email Rob Novak at rnovak@larimer.org [1] or call (970) 679-4561.

Nature Notes Club

Larimer County Natural Resources Nature Notes Club is accepting new members throughout the winter season.  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 the county’s open spaces system, allowing members to immerse themselves in the full range and scope of what the 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 schedule.  Please email Rob Novak at rnovak@larimer.org [1] or call (970) 679-4561 for more details and to sign up.
