What You Should Know About the Wonder of Winter Slide Program

Calling all nature lovers! If you are curious about how plants and animals get through the chilly winter season in Colorado, you will want to check out the Wonder of Winter Slide Program, hosted by the Louisville Public Library. Join Boulder County’s trained volunteer naturalists on January 29th for an afternoon of discovery and fun, where they will cover the ins and outs of how flora and fauna adapt to the harsh weather, from the Continental Divide all the way to the Great Plains. These passionate volunteers know all about Colorado’s diverse landscape and love sharing their knowledge. This event is free to attend, but space is limited. As is the case with most of their events, the library is asking attendees to register online ahead of time so they are able to accommodate as many people as safely possible under current COVID restrictions.

Colorado is a one-of-a-kind state, host to native buffalo, great herds of elk, color-changing foxes, hardy evergreens, and so much more! No matter how much you think you know about nature in the peaks, foothills, and plains, even the most seasoned experts are constantly discovering surprising facts about how these amazing creatures survive and thrive in even the coldest of months.

The Louisville Public Library offers many programs and events for Boulder County residents to attend, including interactive TV and movie screenings like Snark Attack, and teen events like the Anime Club and Teen Gaming night. Other events offer the opportunity to sharpen your financial skills, learn the ins and outs of tracing your family tree through Ancestry.com, or get a hands-on art lesson with a hint of cultural history. You can even win a free National Parks Pass this month by testing your smarts at the Nerdfest Family Trivia! Check out the library’s events calendar to find a program that works with your schedule and interests.

The Front Range is host to many opportunities to interact with and learn about its native plants and animals, such as the Rocky Mountain Arsenal Wildlife Refuge and the trails and buildings of historic Colorado Chautauqua. Conveniently located in Gunbarrel, Habitat Apartments provides its residents easy access to all of Boulder County’s natural and historical landmarks, in addition to the library’s free educational resources and programs. Whether you want to hit the trails or hit the books, Habitat Apartments is a great place to start. Check out our floorplans and contact us today to learn more.
