COSA Outdoor Adult Education: Xeric Tallgrass Prairie Hike 08-20-21 @ 8-11 :30am

Join members of the Wild Ones Front Range Chapter to explore a rare xeric tallgrass plant community at the foot of the Front Range in Boulder. August is the height of growth for this grassland community. Lynn Riedel, Plant Ecologist with the City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks will assist with species identification and discuss the cultural needs of native grasses and mid to late summer prairie wildflowers.

Attendees should expect to hike 2-3 miles at a slow to moderate pace over relatively level, but very rocky terrain. There is no shade, and windy conditions are likely. Please bring plenty of water, wear sun protection and closed-toed shoes (cacti), and dress appropriately for warm or cool weather. A plant list will be provided.

When: Friday, August 20, 2021, 8-11am (possibly 11:30am, depending on weather)
Where: TBD (City of Boulder Open Space property; exact location will be shared with registrants via email prior to the event)

Cost: Wild Ones members: $10; non-members $20. Thank you for your support to offset costs for this and future chapter programs.

Registration: Space is limited. frontrangewildones. I hope that you can join us for a fun morning in the field!

Wild regards,
