City Nature Challenge: Wildflower Bonanza Hike

City Nature Challenge: Wildflower Bonanza Hike 
Sat. April 28, 9 am - 1 pm

This hike is free but limited to 15. Please register here:

Between April 27 - 30, Boulder County is competing against other US cities in the City Nature Challenge! Which city can post the most species observations on the iNaturalist citizen science web page?

Join the fun with OSMP naturalist Dave Sutherland and Melanie Hill from WILD Foundation on a special nature hike to find and report plants and animals on OSMP. We’ll take a hike on the Goshawk Ridge trail, which winds through one of the most beautiful and pristine parts of OSMP. Its pine forests and lush, wet meadows are thick with wildflowers and a haven for wildlife. At this time of year, we may see more Pasque flowers than you ever imagined in one place! Bring your camera or smartphone with the iNaturalist app loaded and ready to go.  4 miles, 700’ elevation gain. Meeting location provided with your reservation confirmation email.
