Broomfield Commons Open Space is home to a plethora of plants and animals native to Colorado.

On September 10th  from 8 am to 12 pm, you are invited to join the City and County of Broomfield, Broomfield Open Space Foundation, and Butterfly Pavilion’s Urban Prairie Project Restoration Master Volunteers to  investigate all the living things found in the Broomfield Commons Open Space in the fall.

We will be conducting a bio blitz (cataloging all life) using the iNaturalist app (a free app used to identify plants and animals) and some nature guides to identify as many plants and animals as we can find. Stay as long as you like, any amount of time you can contribute is helpful! All skill levels and ages are welcome and children under 13 are welcome with an adult.

This event is free. PLEASE  Register at the City and County of Broomfield’s Volunteer Hub

Bring water, sunscreen, sunglasses, hats, closed-toe shoes, and a curious and observant mind. If you plan to bring your phone to use iNaturalist, please download the app and set up your account before the event.

We will meet at 8 am at the Commons Trailhead parking lot off of Lowell at 12955 Lowell Blvd at the intersection of Westlake Drive and Lowell Blvd. 

If you arrive later than 8 am, you can text Jessica Goldstrohm at

970-690-4408 and she’ll direct you where to go.
