Larimer County Natural Resources Nature Notes Club looking for new members

Larimer County Natural Resources Nature Notes Club is accepting new members throughout the spring. You can join current members already journaling in the style of John Muir and Aldo Leopold with Volunteer Naturalist Lisa.

The club will have several outings throughout the county’s open spaces system, allowing members to immerse themselves in the full range and scope of what the open spaces have to offer. Club members will receive basic instruction on sketching, ecology, geology, wildlife and other natural sciences to enhance the experience. You can participate in all sessions, or just a few — whatever fits your schedule. Please email Heather Young at hyoung@larimer.org or call 970-679-4489 for more details and to sign up.
