Xeric Tallgrass Prairie Hike

August 20 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am

Xeric Tallgrass Prairie Hike
with Lynn Riedel, Plant Ecologist, City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks

Where: TBD (City of Boulder Open Space property; exact location will be shared with registrants via email prior to the event)

Registration: Space is limited. Save the date; registration coming soon.

Explore a globally rare tallgrass plant community at the foot of the Front Range in Boulder. August is the height of growth for this grassland community; plant ecologist Lynn Riedel will help with identification and discuss the cultural needs of native grasses and mid to late summer prairie wildflowers.

Attendees should expect to hike 2-3 miles at a slow to moderate pace over relatively level, but very rocky terrain. There is no shade, and windy conditions are likely. Please bring plenty of water, wear sun protection and closed-toed shoes (cacti), and dress appropriately for warm or cool weather.
