“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!

Nature Toddlers

With Dave Van Manen

August 21, 2017
A wonderful way to experience the wonders of Nature with your little one(s). The program is designed especially for toddlers and consists of a gentle hike, music, exploration, discovery, and lots of fun! We listen for and look for birds, watch the clouds drift by, learn about local animals, sing songs, learn some simple sign language, and we usually even learn a few basic yoga poses (made extra fun for little ones). A treat for toddlers and their moms, dads, and grandparents! Please note we are switching the program to Mondays!
