Natural Areas are naturally yours! You are welcome to explore and help care for these special places. The City's Natural Areas Department manages 41 sites and over 36,000 acres locally and regionally, so there is likely a natural area near you!

Most Fort Collins natural areas are open for your enjoyment and recreation from 5 a.m. until 11 p.m. except for Bobcat Ridge Natural AreaGateway Natural Area , Reservoir Ridge Natural Area and Soapstone Prairie Natural Area which are open from dawn to dusk.
