Love Hiking? Don’t Let Winter Stop You!

Love Hiking? Don’t Let Winter Stop You!

What to Bring on a Winter Hike

When hiking in the summer, we often skip out onto the trails with nothing but a bottle of water in hand. Winter hiking, on the other hand, demands that you come prepared with a few key items for your comfort and safety. Whether you’re planning a short 2-mile jaunt or a daylong trek, remember the old adage, “Better safe than sorry!” Here is a basic list to get you going:

  • Plenty of water and snacks as needed
  • Extra pair of socks
  • Extra pair of foot traction
  • Fully-charged cell phone with NOAA weather app
  • Water and other supplies for your pet(s) if they are joining you
  • map of the area
  • Trekking poles for balance and stability (optional)
  • A hiking partner (recommended)

That last one can be a bit controversial in the hiking and mountaineering community. We know that some of you love your solo hikes and climbs, but it goes without saying that having a partner along for the ride is safer than going it alone. This is particularly true in the wintertime. Consider it, especially if you’ll be far out in the backcountry or tackling a daylong trip.

National Kids to Parks Day is May 21, 2016 – Wondering What To Do?

kids fishing

National Kids to Parks Day is a great reminder to get our kids outside – especially into wild spaces. The City of Boulder’s Open Space & Mountain Parks will be celebrating both International Migratory Bird Day and National Kids to Parks Day on May 21, 2016 from 9am to 2pm.

You are invited to celebrate International Migratory Bird Day and  National Kids to Parks Day by visiting a local wetland. Open Space and Mountain Parks is partnering with Environment for the Americas and other local organizations and business in Boulder to present a one-of-a-kind nature event. We’ll have education stations along a trail that teach participants of all ages about birds, how to use binoculars, insects, plants, and much more. Activities are interactive, and the day’s special events will include a raptor demonstration and guided bird walks. Get involved in conservation by donating to the Open Space native plant nursery to grow the wildflowers, willows, and cottonwoods that provide food and shelter for our local birds and other wildlife.

The event is free, but your donation supports habitat restoration for birds and other wildlife in the Boulder area. In the past 5 years, your contributions have purchased thousands of dollars in trees, shrubs, and wildflowers that are planted on Open Space lands in Boulder County for the benefit of birds and other wildlife.

More Details Here: http://www.environmentamericas.org/boulder-bird-day/ 

Walden Ponds is located on 75th Street, about 1 mile north of Valmont Road – there is a large road sign. Call Environment for the Americas with any questions: 303-499-1950.
