KC Nature Programs for Adults & Families

Hiking Club

Join us for easy to moderate hikes throughout Ken-Caryl and Jefferson County. Each hike will be focused on what birds we can spot or the wildflowers that are in bloom, but this will not limit the discussion on other surroundings. Please wear proper shoes and layers, bring a day pack with water, sunscreen, a sack lunch, and binoculars if you have them.
