Burst in to Nature: Learning to Observe Signs of Summer

Buff up on your nature knowledge with this hike focused on how to learn to read the signs of summer by making plant and animal observations. Our observations will be used by Project BudBurst and Project Noah, two programs that let you be the scientist and be part of a nationwide citizen science program! Use your smart phone and notebook to document changes in plant and animals species. Don 't have a smart phone? Bring your digital camera instead! The whole family is invited to Devil s Backbone Open Space, located just west of Loveland off of Hwy 34, to learn about the wildflowers and wildlife of the area, and connect your family to nature.
