Description#

Flores del Sol is a 152-acre natural area west of Timberline Road and south of Carpenter Road that provides open space adjacent to the Colorado Front Range Trail.

The site was named Flores del Sol because of the vision to establish native wildflowers and grass buffers around agricultural fields to enhance the site for native pollinators (such as bees, moths, birds) and other wildlife.  Several small irrigation ditches are the only prominent features on this relatively flat sunny area. While the site will likely be used for community agriculture, research, and education, native buffers will help increase biodiversity on the natural area. The name means "flowers of the sun" in Spanish.
