News Release

NoCo Nature Festival 9/21/13 - Cancelled

Department: Natural Resources
Release Date: Sep 17, 2013

Contact Information:

Rob Novak, Community Relations Specialist, (970) 679-4561,

 Due to conditions at Fossil Creek Reservoir Regional Open Space the 2013 NoCo Nature Festival is cancelled.  

Soils at the event site are highly saturated, and there is reasonable concern that the event (booths and parking) would cause significant resource damage to the area. Organizers’ thoughts are with those impacted by the recent floods, and we sincerely hope that recovery efforts will be effective in mitigating the damage and loss our communities are facing. 
Organizers would like to thank all of our event sponsors, especially Poudre Pet and Feed Supply, Wild Birds Unlimited, Fort Fund, Ottercares, REI, and KUNC for their continued support and efforts to keep the festival free for all. 
The NoCo Nature Festival was previously the Northern Colorado Birding Fair and was redesigned for 2013 with expanded activities, live music and more. Event organizers and partners look forward to unveiling the new and improved event in September of 2014.
