Join Douglas Land Conservancy and Douglas County Open Space for family friendly outings to discover the wildflowers blooming at this time. Year after year these hikes are very popular. For 2021 we are offering outings on four different days and at a variety of open spaces.
Douglas County is home to many varieties of wildflowers, shrubs, and trees as well as providing great habitat for wildlife. This year is particularly bountiful, due to all the moisture. Your guides are DLC & DCOS volunteers and Colorado Native Plant Masters. The pace on all of these hikes will be slow due to stopping to learn about the wildflowers (and ooh and aah at their beauty).
Bring plenty of water, a snack, sun protection, and a camera if desired. Long pants may be preferable as there is poison ivy in some areas, although we will definitely try to avoid where it grows. Dogs on leash are welcome.
