Pay a visit to Filoha Meadows
June 30, 2012
REDSTONE – Filoha Meadows, a unique piece of Pitkin County open space with rare orchids, thermal wetlands and fireflies, will be the focus of three evening tours in July.
Participants will have a chance to tour areas of the meadows that are otherwise closed to public access with a guide from the Roaring Fork Conservancy. Issues related to Filoha Meadows and the Crystal Valley, including a habitat-improvement project, will be discussed. The property is located north of Redstone off Highway 133.
Scheduled tours are Monday, Thursday and July 10 and 11, all from 7 to 9:30 p.m.
The tour is free and underwritten by Pitkin County Open Space and Trails, but registration is required – go to http://www.roaringfork.org/events to sign up. Spots tend to fill up quickly.
