The City of Fort Collins puts on many nature programs through their Tracks and Trails program. Everything from photography, kids programs, water ecology, astronomy and night hikes are offered. Here is some information about the upcoming night hikes which sound very fun.
Two types of night hikes are offered—one for families and one for adults. Families enjoy a short walk with interactive activities and stories related to nocturnal animals and night senses. Adults experience a longer, quieter walk, with information about the night and time for reflection. Children 16 and older may come to adult walks but must be accompanied by parents. Walks are scheduled when the moon gives lots of natural light—no need for flashlights! Dress warmly, wear good walking shoes, and bring water to drink.
The night hikes are free, but registration is required—location will be emailed to you after registration. You can register at naturetracker.fcgov.com or 970-416-2815.
