Springer Natural Area


Springer is a forested natural area along the Poudre River Trail. Just a short distance east of Lemay on the Poudre River Trail, visitors will find an interpretive sign that describes the American black currant, listed as critically imperiled in Colorado, which grows on Springer Natural Area. Wildlife watchers are likely to see and hear the many migratory songbirds, waterfowl, and waterbirds that are typically found here. You may also see evidence of beaver activity on this natural area.
