Salyer Natural Area
Easy to get to from the Poudre Trail and nearby neighborhoods, this site is an enjoyable part of the natural area experience along the north side of the Poudre River. Look for waterfowl and birds such as killdeers, belted kingfishers, and song sparrows. You may notice the iris on the site sign- it is a native plant found at Salyer. The iris have been temporarily relocated while the meadow is restored to its native condition. Look for the iris to be replanted in a few years, once restoration is complete.
