Mueller State Park – Saturday, July 10, 2021 at 6:30 AM
Join Debbie Barnes at Mueller State Park on Saturday, July 10 for birds, mammals, and bugs. We will be hiking about 5 miles, in some steep terrain so if unsure of footing, bring hiking poles. Photography will be part of the trip but no tripods as we will be moving. Meet at the Mueller State Park Visitor Center at 6:30am. Make sure to have water, lunch, snacks. Sunscreen and rain gear always helpful. Every vehicle will require a State Parks pass, $9, which can be purchased with cash at the parking spot to the right and behind the entrance station if you don’t have a annual pass on your vehicle. Email Debbie Barnes to register ([email protected]).

Join Diana Beatty for a relaxed Saturday morning, July 17 as we explore the paved trails that carve through ponds, marshes, and along Fountain Creek at this park south of Colorado Springs.

We will meet at the nature center parking lot at 7:30 am to bird for 3-4 hours. Please come prepared with water, snacks, and binoculars.
