Join Roaring Fork Conservancy and Pitkin County Open Space & Trails for an evening exploration of Filoha Meadows. Located near Redstone on Highway 133, Filoha Meadows is a natural thermal wetland, providing unique habitat for rare orchids, fireflies, and many other plant and animal species. We’ll tour areas typically closed to the public to learn more about these incredible species, the history of this unique area, and discuss current issues in the Crystal River Valley and Filoha Meadows. Please keep in mind: This program is appropriate for those 12 years and older. Minors must be accompanied by a parent. Please dress appropriately as the program will happen rain or shine. Please also wear closed toed shoes as there is quite a bit of walking, including on uneven terrain.
