Explore a Larimer County park or open space.

Join us for a scheduled public education program, request a naturalist led program for your school or community group, schedule your school group to run your own education program or enjoy exploring on your own.

Larimer County Department of Natural Resources offers a variety opportunities for education groups and we ask all groups submit a request for self-directed or naturalist led programs utilizing the properties.  Education programs are free or low cost but do require registration. To register, please create a free account in Offero (name, email and phone number are all that is required).
