Brown’s Canyon National Monument Bio Blitz

Browns Canyon National Monument protects a stunning section of Colorado’s upper Arkansas River Valley. Located near Salida, the 21,586-acre monument features rugged granite cliffs, colorful rock outcroppings, and mountain vistas that are home to a diversity of plants and wildlife, including bighorn sheep and golden eagles. Members of Congress, local elected officials, conservation advocates, and community members have worked for more than a decade to protect the area, which hosts world-class recreational opportunities that attract visitors from around the globe for hiking, whitewater rafting, hunting and fishing. Join the Pike/San Isabel National Forest & Cimarron/Comanche National Grassland ranger district for their BioBlitz on June 1-2. A BioBlitz is an intense period of biological surveying in an attempt to record all the living species within this beauatiful  area. Groups of scientists, naturalists and volunteers conduct an intensive field study over these two days.
