Hidden Worlds of the Shortgrass Prairie - Workshop

Presented by Amy Wildgrube and Susan McEachern, 
Volunteer Naturalists with Boulder County Parks and Open Space

Amy and Susan are both trained Volunteer Naturalists with Boulder County Parks and Open Space, and share a love and passion for the shortgrass prairie of Colorado.  They both enjoy learning, playing, and exploring in our local natural environment, and studying and teaching about wildlife, native plants, pollinators, birds, and natural history.

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.
