With spectacular weekends filling fall months, the mountains beckon. Avoid I-70 traffic and head for a nearby mountain town for fall fun and (hopefully) fall colors. On Saturday, September 24, 2022, Nederland’s Wild Bear Mountain Ecology Center hosts its 21st Annual Enchanted Forest from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Mud Lake Open Space.
Follow a trail to meet friendly animals (bear, fox, moose and even a crayfish) that talk about their lives in the wild and fill goody bags with special gifts. Visit the magical log cabin. Take tours of the forest.
Build a fairy house and other crafts to take home.
Youngsters can meet live owls and eagles, plus enjoy magic and music throughout the day. There will be live music by the No Gillbillies from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Tickets are $12 per adult when purchased in advance online, $15 on the day of the event.
Visitors can take RTD’s N bus from Boulder’s Walnut Street Station. For more information, call 303-258-0495.
