Stroll with a Native Plant Master along easy trails identifying and naming local plants. Discover the various ways that native and non-native plants defend themselves from wildlife and humans.

Native Plant Masters are certified experts in Colorado's native flora. They are volunteers with a passion for plants and have received special training from Colorado State University Extension who then share that knowledge with others.

Join us for a walk through the wealth of native wildflowers, grasses, trees, and shrubs that Jefferson County has to offer.
