Dress warmly and bring a blanket or chair to sit on. Meet in the parking lot. Pets are not permitted at Fossil Creek Reservoir Natural Area. Please bring binoculars if you have them! It will make star viewing easier. Volunteers from the Northern Colorado Astronomical Society provide telescopes and share their knowledge about the stars, planets, galaxies, and more.

Betsy O - Volunteer Naturalist Assistant

I have been a resident of Fort Collins for over 30 years. I came to Fort Collins to attend graduate school at CSU. My career in education spans over 30 years. I am currently an adult education instructor with The Learning Source at FRCC. The things I most enjoy doing in the outdoors are camping, hiking, kayaking, and walking. As a certified forest therapy guide, I also enjoy leading forest therapy walks around the Fort Collins community. I love everything Fort Collins has to offer.
