Learn how your best friend can enjoy the natural areas with you and how together you can help water and wildlife. One well-behaved dog on a hand-held leash per family welcome to come along! 18+ Through a series of hikes, dog owners/caretakers will learn about our local water resources, how humans and pets can impact water quality, easy ways to mitigate/reduce our impacts, and the importance of protected riparian areas to water quality. Participants will also learn about the ecology and history pertinent to the hike location, as well as tips for keeping their canine companion safe on the trail. Hikes can be taken as a standalone program or as a series. Gateway tour will have greater emphasis on water supply and watershed health. Red Fox Meadows tour will have greater emphasis on stormwater processes. Lee Martinez/McMurry tour will have greater emphasis on recreational impacts and role of riparian areas.

I have lived in Fort Collins since 1990, and fall more in love with it every year. I love exploring the Natural Areas with youngsters and the young at heart! I learn more with each step I take in the Natural Areas, and I look forward to continuing to explore it with you for years to come!
