Winter Wildflowers Hike


Come hunt for wildflowers on an early afternoon hike.





Exercise while discovering the first signs of Spring! It will be a terrific hike starting at 1pm in the parking lot. This hike is considered appropriate for people ages 12+ because of the length and moderate vigor of the hike. In the case of snow, snowshoes will be available.

HINT: Dress in layers and wear good hiking shoes. Remember to bring plenty of water and maybe a snack!

MPEC's own Flower Field Guide makes a perfect giftYour guide will be the park’s Executive Director, Dave van Manen, the nationally-known children’s musician. He is excellently suited for leading the hike. He has worked in the education field for nearly forty years.  He also wrote a guide to the plants of the park and surrounding area, Plants of Pueblo Mountain Park.

As with any exercise, if a certain movement or position hurts, try to modify the workout to avoid the aggravating activities. Also, anytime you’re training with resistance, remember that proper technique is important. Don’t get so caught up in your dancing that you forget proper form. — Mayo Clinic

Pueblo Bluegrass at the Fair – May 29-31, 2015


May 29-31

This event brings together a mix of the best traditional and progressive Bluegrass bands around!




Located at the Colorado State Fairgrounds, this venue gives attendees the convenient option of setting up camp.


An All-American melting pot of music, Bluegrass music began in the Appalachian mountains in the 1700’s. With many fast passages, it made for great dancing music!

There are three main types of bluegrass music — all three will be played at the festival! Progressive bluegrass often plays on electric instruments (like the electic fiddle and electric cello) and “borrows” songs from other music genres. Traditional bluegrass plays on “natural” (nonelectric) instruments. Neo-traditional bluegrass blends the first two types with a healthy dose of jazz thrown in for good measure.
