The Larimer County Passport to Your Open Spaces

Missing Plaque: The "Easy" post and plaque at Devil's Backbone Open Space, near the Keyhole, have been stolen. We will be replacing this post and plaque. Until they are replaced, you may take a photo of yourself at the Keyhole and either include the photo with your passport when you submit it, or email the photo to tparker-renga@larimer.org.
The grand prize drawing was held December 6, 2016. Winners have been notified. If you are still working on completing your passport, please continue! You can still submit your passport to win cool prizes and enter into the next grand prize drawing set for December 2017.

From prairies to mountains and forests to wetlands, Larimer County's open spaces deliver the best of Colorado's great outdoors. Explore your open spaces using the passport as your guide! Win cool prizes!

Posts are located on eight Larimer County open spaces. Two posts have been placed on each open space in easy (short hike) and hard (long hike) locations. Each post has a plaque affixed to it with a unique image. Place your passport over the plaque and make a rubbing of the image to "stamp" your passport. Don't forget to bring a crayon or pencil with you!

Collect 8 rubbings to win a prize, 12 rubbings to win a passport T-shirt, or all 16 rubbings to win a prize and T-shirt and be entered into a drawing for grand prizes! See below for this year's grand prizes.
