OSHR 1865 - Colorado: Explore, Engage, Enjoy!

  • Noncredit

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.

Corner to corner, border to border, Colorado offers something to explore no matter where you travel. The landscapes, lifescapes, and humanscapes offer, both collectively and individually, a unique blend of history, activities, wildlife, and natural beauty appealing to every type of outdoor aficionado. This class will divide the state into six sections - three north and three south - and take a tour of each of them.

From plains to peak, canyon to cliff, and stream to scenic highway, we will visit museums and scenic overlooks, walk trails and watch wildlife, always stopping to engage the land, life, and history of each.

Please Note: No Class November 24.

Noncredit courses do not produce academic credit nor appear on a Colorado State University academic transcript.
