|Another Walk on the Wild Side Success|
On a beautiful day in early October, walkers gathered at Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory for Walk on the Wild Side. Toddlers took on the 1K trek, while the more mobile walkers were challenged by 5K and 10K hikes along Barr Lake, in Colorado.
The purpose of the walkathon was to raise funds for the Observatory's many conservation education programs, which reach thousands of people every year. The fundraiser brought in over $4,000 in its first year.
