Colorado hosts about 500 different kinds of birds, almost 3,000 wildflowers, nearly 1,700 mushroom-forming fungi, and vastly more other wildlife. Regarding such diversity, one might assert, "I’d rather see a meadowlark a thousand times than to see a thousand birds once!" or possibly, "I want to see it al!"

We all marvel at every mountain bluebird we see, but seeing all three kinds of bluebird is marvelous, too! One way to engage wildlife is to wander around hoping something interesting will appear. A better way is to go afield with a sense of purpose, to find something deliberately, knowing you’ll find much else along the way.

This class will present information about what wildlife lives in Colorado--and then detail where, when, and how to find it.
