Spend a cozy evening by the campfire, complete with stories and s’mores! These programs are suitable for all ages. Dress warmly and bring water to drink. Campfires at Nix Farm do not include a hike and are wheelchair accessible. Bring lawn chairs or blankets to sit on if you like (limited seating available). Location: Nix Farm (Natural Areas Office), 1745 Hoffman Mill Road Go north on Lemay from Riverside and turn right on Poudre River Drive (about ½ block north of Riverside). This is located between two medical buildings. After about 1 block, the Poudre River Drive ends and you will see a paved road to your right which is Hoffman Mill Road. Stay on this paved road for almost a mile (past the crushing facility). The road ends at our offices. Tonight's theme is: Tall Tales and Starlight Storytelling - Listen to campfire stories and join in with some singing too!Minimum Participants: 5

I am a Public Engagement Specialist with the City of Fort Collins Natural Areas and I organize community programs, programs by request and interpretive communications like signs and brochures. I'm excited to be back in Fort Collins again after being gone for 15 years. My favorite things to talk about are conservation issues, conservation research and raptors!! The black blur in the profile photo is my cattle dog. She never stops moving!
I was a volunteer educator in our 300-year-old colonial community near Boston. After moving to Oregon, I led hikes with Friends of the Columbia Gorge, with a focus on the Civilian Conservation Corps in the '30s. I'm a docent at the historic Avery House in FC. Along with regular camping and hiking in Rocky, I've been active with the NAD since 2014 to facilitate participants' learning the history, geology, ecology, flora, fauna, and stewardship of our Front Range natural areas.
