Come explore nature in a safe and accessible way with your little ones (age 3-7). Gateway Natural Areas has a large grass area with picnic shelters and a nature playground, yet is surrounded by mountains and right next to the Cache la Poudre River. This is a great opportunity to ease into the outdoors! We will have sticks, water, and buckets for kids to play with and explore. Bring water, sun protection, clothes that can get wet and dirty, and a picnic lunch if you'd like for afterwards! Location: Gateway Natural Area, free parking for program participants, meet near the picnic shelters.Minimum Participants: 5

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!
