Park Rangers will be leading a guided hike focusing on winter ecology at Mesa Verde National Park this Saturday, February 13, beginning at 9:00 am. The guided hike is free, but advance sign-up is requested. Children should be at least 7 years old to join the hike. Participants will meet at the Morefield Village parking lot, and then explore the hillsides around the Morefield Campground, learning about animal tracks and signs and looking for evidence of wildlife. Be prepared to be outdoors for 2 to 3 hours with extra layers of clothing, water, and snacks. There is a limit of 20 adults and children. If needed, snowshoes will be provided, or you may bring your own.
