Nature always seems more interesting, more dynamic, more special someplace else. This perception drives the ecotourism industry as people travel to see wonderful things in wonderful places far, far away. But the pursuit of the exotic can blind a person to how interesting, how dynamic, how special nature and wildlife are right here in the back yard and along the trail.
Focusing on everything but elk, moose, and bighorn sheep, "100 Creatures" will itemize a rich diversity of Colorado’s findable, but lesser-known wildlife, with supporting information about when and where to look for them and how to identify them once sited.
Participants will develop strategies for planning their own time afield in Colorado to be more enjoyable.
