We’re meeting 1:30pm at Little Park (21763 Miller Ln, Idledale, CO 80453). We’ll be meeting at this park for all of October.
There are many tucked-away water play spaces. This week, as well as getting thoroughly wet, we’ll also do some mushroom hunting. Not trying to eat these, just find them, maybe photograph them, and we can look them up in books later. Nature’s treasure hunt? Perhaps.
Let’s meet near the parking lot again, and head down the trail. If you’re pretty late, find us! We’ll head southwest down the creek toward Lair o’ the Bear, stopping to explore along the way.
This week, please bring:
A small knife for slicing mushroom stems, if we find some, and a basket for carrying
Sunscreen, snacks + drinks for your people
It seems easiest if we use a single park for each month, rather than bouncing around. I am going to spread us out northeast and southwest, then centrally again. My goal is water nearby + a nature play area, whatever else we find is extra. To suggest an alternate park, if you wish, please email me!
Oct 20: Nature Play + Tree Climbing with a Hike @ Little Park
Oct 27: Nature Play + a Moss/Lichen Seek-n-Find @ Little Park
In November, we’ll be meeting at Prospect Park (W 44th Avenue and Robb Street, Wheat Ridge, CO 80033). It’s creekside, with multiple playgrounds, sports fields, pickle ball + fishing lakes.
