This group is for curious-minded individuals who are passionate about the preservation, conservation, and beauty of Colorado's natural wonders. Join the Trailblazers for social networking opportunities three –four times a year, where casual evenings are blended with interactive discussions, featuring renowned scientists and researchers from our region. Trailblazers are treated to unique opportunities to join field excursions to the Aurora or West Bijou sites and participate in hands-on citizen science research alongside a featured lecturer/scientist. This added component takes the interactive lecture into the field and provides the rare opportunity to experience how research is practically conducted, by digging a little deeper, literally!
