Programs


What We Do


This volunteers-based group, led by volunteers, gathers periodically for meetings to organize and fund supplemental grassland programs, projects and events. The Friends group is a network of citizens and partners who have “adopted” this natural resource in order to increase awareness, support facility improvement, expand education and programs, and stay informed about important natural resources topics occurring within Colorado that may affect our grassland. Below you'll find our current programs.
