OSHR 1823 - Colorado Summer: August

  • Noncredit
  • Loveland

This course is offered through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Colorado State University. You must be a member of Osher to enroll in this course.

This short course will present information on the wildlife and natural history of Colorado for the month of August.

Summer observes quietude during August. Finished nesting, the birds stop singing; finished breeding, the frogs stop chirping. Bull moose are their most affable; coyote pups follow their mothers and somehow help without helping when she hunts for them. Ducks and geese molt, and monarchs begin their southward migration flight. Life is quiet but busy.

Specific information about what to look for, where to look for it, how to find it, and when to explore will be discussed. Details about locations, access including fees, length of walks or hikes, roadside viewing, and available services will be covered. Learn what’s out there so you can plan into your own schedule when to pursue what specifically interests you.
