Nature Detectives in the Field: Rain Drop Racing – Following our Water's Path

 05/24/2024  |  10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
  Ron Stewart Preserve at Rabbit Mountain  |  Registration Required

Natural History - Families (Ages 6 & Up)

A cloud hovers above, ready to unleash. The first couple drops come racing down, hitting the ground around your feet. Soon after, a rush of water comes flowing down. Using activities and games, we will explore where our water comes from. We will learn about water’s properties and watershed dynamics and get a better understanding of what happens to rain and snow on the landscape. This program is geared toward children ages 6-8, but all are welcome.

Minimum Participants: 5
Maximum Participants: 15

Registration is required for this activity.

I grew up in Boulder County, and have always loved the landscape here, from the plains to the high peaks. One of my parents was a scientist and the other a visual artist, and both perspectives have influenced my life; I want to be able to understand how things work, and also to appreciate their beauty. I think one of the most important challenges for humankind right now is to understand our place in the ecosystem, and learn to live like the rest of the natural world is our kin.

Having grown up in Boulder, much of my youth was spent recreating on the many trails and acres of open space that characterize our community. I then lived in Vermont for eight years where I studied Sociology and Parks and Recreation at the University of Vermont, and worked in outdoor recreation, community mental health, and biodynamic farming. Upon returning to Colorado, I've worked in natural resources at the city, county, and federal level, and I'm so happy to be back working at BCPOS again!
