The backyard serves as a constant source of wonder and fascination and is a great place to connect young minds with nature!

As a Junior Habitat Hero the pondering of questions from explorations and discoveries in your backyard will spark a curiosity of the world we share with other creatures. Join Jamie Weiss, Audubon Rockies' Habitat Heroes Coordinator, to learn the basics of gardening,identify parts of a plant and their functions, act out the water cycle, and more, all while having fun! In this hands-on workshop, you will also create an activity booklet and walk the gardens led by volunteers of The Gardens on Spring Creek.

Together we can bring conservation home one yard at a time! Pre-registration is required. Please call our Gardens staff at 970.416.2486 to register.
