The Hidden Worlds of the Shortgrass Prairie


Discover the quiet beauty of the shortgrass prairie, one of Boulder County's native ecosystems. Along with rainforests, prairies are our most important carbon-sequestration communities. They are home to threatened species such as black-footed ferrets, burrowing owls, and ferruginous hawks, as well as bison, elk, deer, antelope, prairie dogs, box turtles, and rattlesnakes. We will begin with an indoor slideshow, followed by an easy outdoor walk by Stearns Lake.

Near Broomfield. Location provided when registered. Registration for most programs begins on the 20th of the month before the event.

Registration required.
