Explore the wonder and diversity of the park’s wildflowers with former Rocky Mountain National Park interpretive naturalist Leanne Benton. The park’s vertical topography allows for a variety of habitats, and this event will search out lush wildflower displays from montane meadows to high alpine ridges.
Participants will get up-close with the mountain flora to discover their adaptations for survival and interesting stories behind their beautiful faces. Identification techniques will be honed, and participants will gain confidence using a simple flower key. Day 1 will focus on montane and subalpine wildflowers. Day 2 will focus on alpine wildflowers.
