Heather Young, Natural Resources Education Coordinator, (970) 679-4489,

 Back by popular demand, Larimer County Natural Resources and Northern Water invite you to attend a field trip to Chimney Hollow Open Space in the Blue Mountain Conservation Area. There are two opportunities to attend:

Chimney Hollow Open Space Tour
Saturday, August 3 OR Thursday, September 5
9:00 am – 12:00 pm
The field trip will include an easy, round-trip walk of 0.5 mile for the whole group. After learning about the Windy Gap Firming Project’s proposed Chimney Hollow Reservoir and the Chimney Hollow property, the group will split up, and one group will have an opportunity to hike farther, and the other group will receive a historical interpretive tour of the property. The longer hike will be an additional 1.5 miles and is rated as moderate. This hike will give a sense of what the recreational amenities may become following a public management planning process.  
This special opportunity is free, but space is very limited. Be sure to not miss this unique opportunity to visit an open space that is not currently open to the public. Register at:  
For any questions, please contact: Heather Young, (970) 679-4489,
