Soapstone Prairie-It's Not Just Grass

What a fun day, yesterday! We went on a hike guided by a mater naturalist from the city of Fort Collins at Soapstone Pairie. Soapstone is an open space with 28 square acres that are open to hikers, cyclists, and horeback riders alike. There is also a paved walking trail off of the north parking lot that is fully accessable to those with disabilities.

On our windy but beautiful walk we learned all about bunch grasses, steppes, natural history of northern Colorado, ancient people who inhabitied this area and current animal and insect residents of Soapstone.

Be sure to join us on our next Soapstone adventure: Monday, June 14th 10-11:30 am, Soapstone Prairie-North Parking Lot, Wildflowers of Soapstone Prairie, 1.5 miles-easy. Free, no registration required.
