The Hidden Worlds of the Shortgrass Prairie


Discover the quiet beauty of the shortgrass prairie, a native ecosystem in Boulder County. Prairies, along with rainforests, are crucial for storing carbon. They also provide habitats for endangered animals. These animals include black-footed ferrets, burrowing owls, and ferruginous hawks. Bison, elk, deer, pronghorn, prairie dogs, box turtles, and rattlesnakes are also found there.

Registration for most programs begins on the 20th of the month before the event.

Registration required.


Registration is required through Discover Boulder County, Parks & Open Space’s volunteer and event registration system. If you’re new to the system, you'll need to create an account.
