Join OSMP naturalist Jenny Natapow on a wild adventure as we explore the varied ecosystems of Boulder's beloved foothills. Children discover for themselves who inhabits our foothills as they hunt for coyote tracks, find grasshoppers, smell Ponderosa pine trees, and listen for the river- once we hear the water, it's play time! This excursion covers 1 mile of relatively flat ground and includes hands-on learning, discovery, and nature play. Each hike in this monthly series will focus on a different topic with an emphasis on stewardship, safety, and fun! Attend two of these programs, and kids are well on their way to completing Ranger Paula’s Passport to Wild Adventure and earning their Ranger Paula Patch. Passports can be obtained at the Chautauqua Ranger Cottage or on any kids program. To receive your patch, submit a completed passport to the Ranger Cottage and take the Ranger Paula Oath of Stewardship! Remember to bring: a lunch and snacks, water, clothes and shoes for water play, sun protection, and your sense of adventure!
