“Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So… get on your way.” ~ Dr. Seuss

 

Yes, your mountain, and your mountain park, are right here in Beulah and just waiting for you to seize your day and join us for a guided hike, so get on your way to Pueblo Mountain Park.

Please register for programs early so we will know you will be attending! If you want to participate in a program, we hope you won’t wait to register. Many people don’t realize that in order to facilitate a program, there are many behind-the-scenes components to making it happen, including scheduling staff and guest speakers/teachers, preparation for the program, and then working with our kitchen to order and plan meals, shop, etc. So please help us by registering early. We will cancel programs that do not meet registration minimums, often 3 – 5 days in advance. Thank you!

Check out all the events programs we have coming up in March! (Click to enlarge.)
