fossil beds As Valentine's Day approaches you might be wondering how to best celebrate your loved ones.  How about a romantic trip to a national park area?  Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument is offering two programs that offer a unique way to spend time with your Valentine.  
Friday, February 16, Night Sky Program: A Romantic Night Under a Starry Sky

Saturday, February 17, Great Backyard Bird Count (For Love Birds), 9:00 am - 3:00 pm.  The Friends of Florissant Fossil Beds along with many partners will host a citizen science event.

There will be two opportunities to join a scientist and help count birds.  The times are 9:15 am - 10:30 am or 10:45 am - 12:00 pm.   You may participate in one or both if you would like. Meet at the visitor center.  From 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm families can participate in a scavenger hunt and/or make a bird feeder.

There are no additional fees for any park programs beyond the daily entrance fee of $7.00 per adult (15 and younger are free). Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument offers 15 miles of beautiful, yet lesser known, hiking trails to explore, a free Junior Ranger Program, three short self-guided trails, a park video and museum exhibits, and bookstore.  For additional information, please call 719.748.3253 or visit our HERE or on Facebook or Twitter at /FlorissantNPS.

Farmers market
Perfect timing for Valentine's Day gifts, and early Moose viewing.
As Moose is Loose participants, we hope to have Moose specials and to see Mr Moose himself a little later in the morning.
Great photo opportunities!
We hope to have our full quota of vendors back, after the ravages of January 'flu.  [However, we still recommend 'fist bumps' rather than handshakes and hugs.]
Looking forward to having Taylor Produce back outside the top door again - Mike has promised to have lots of the cider they ran out of last season.

Weather forecast is good - see you there!
