People who would like to learn about the wildflowers of Colorado and about native landscaping at the same time can take the Native Plant Master course offered through Colorado State University Extension in Larimer County. This program was a well-kept secret aimed at natural resource agency employees and volunteers until a few years ago when it was opened to members of the general public. People have since flocked to these courses held in “outdoor classrooms” along trails in open space and parks.
Applications for the 2013 courses offered in Larimer County are due by March 15. For more information and to obtain an application, visit the CSU Larimer County Extension web page at www.larimer.org/ext or contact the Extension office at 970-498-6000.
