The patchwork of habitats found in the foothills life zone supports a large variety of life in one place: Horsetooth Mountain Open Space. Explore what lives here and why! We'll learn about how elevation, precipitation, slope, and more influence the diversity of life present at Horsetooth Mountain Open Space. This is the third in a series of hikes at Horsetooth Mountain Open Space centered on getting to know this wonderful place better. Hikes are held on the second Thursday of the month from May-August- check out the calendar to register for future hikes!
