Join Colorado’s own fen authority Dr. David Cooper and Roosevelt National Forest Botanist Steve Popovich in exploring a subalpine fen (10,600 feet elevation) with incredible views of the surrounding mountains near Brainard Lake west of Boulder. We will be deriving baseline lists of vascular plant species and perhaps mosses. Fens are specialized wetlands that are fascinating to visit. The one-day trip includes a flat 3/4-mile walk-in and driving on graded dirt roads, and is limited to 6 people (avid Botanists and novice plant enthusiasts welcome). Rubber boots are required.
