This hike will contribute to understanding the Wilderness Qualities of the Rampart Range WIldlands, the largest block of  roadless land on the Front Range urban backdrop.  Under the guidance of a biologist, we will survey the headwaters of North Monument Creek for interesting or unusual plant and animal life.  Most of the hike will be off-trail and exploratory -- be prepared to climb over and through downed trees, maneuver through rocks, and wade in streams.  This is a very lush and wet area, with wide meadows and ponds near the headwaters, narrowing eventually to a canyon.  Pace will be intermittent -- the biologist will guide us to research spots, and we will spend time in that area before moving on to the next spot.  Be prepared with food and water for a full day in the backcountry.


Ages 16+; Under 18 must be accompanied by parent/guardian 


Several other bioblitz hikes are available on Saturday June 21and Sunday June 22 -- you may sign up for both dates.  Many people will be camping overnight along Rampart Range Road on either Friday or Saturday night; those people are responsible for their own food and shelter. 

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
