Active Outdoor Ideas Spring 2021

photo credit: Timothy Seibert

During the current period of physical distancing and focusing on community health, Broomfield wanted to share some ideas for fun outdoor activities on open space, parks, and trails. These activities focus on movement, safe distancing outdoors, fun, and goodwill!

1. Make nature observations on iNaturalist.com! Take a picture of any plant, animal, or other living thing, and post it on Broomfield’s iNaturalist page. iNaturalist users can also help identify unknown species. Read more about this fun app at Broomfield.org/iNaturalist. 2. Attend an Open Space Speaker Series event. The series covers wide ranging topics in the natural world. Check out the list of upcoming speakers below and search B-REx.com for more Open Space Speaker Series. Jan. 20: Carbon Sequestration, Dr. Francesca Cotrufo Feb. 3: Pollinator District at Baseline Development March 3: Migration and Species Identification, Emily Davenport April 7: Coyotes in Broomfield, Emily Beam and Joelle Cicak. April 28: Summit, Songs, and Science, Dr. Ulyana Horodyskyj

3. Learn more about local birds and engage with birders with the Broomfield Bird Club at Broomfieldbird.club. The Club organizes outings to nearby natural areas and hosts meetings and presentations on local bird life. When you are on a walk, listen for birds singing and compare some of the different songs. Audubon’s Guide to North American Birds has detailed photos and sound clips of birdsongs to help you get started. 4. Check out the new West Midway Pedestrian Bridge. The long-awaited bike and pedestrian bridge near West Midway Boulevard and Hoyt Street spans over the railroad tracks providing Broomfield a connection to the US-36 Bikeway and the Interlocken area, closing a major gap for the Broomfield Trail.

2021 Spring

5. Have a local wildlife question or concern? Contact a Broomfield Wildlife Master. Local residents volunteer their time to answer your questions about wildlife concerns or conflicts for residents. Call 303.464.5554 and leave a message on a voicemail. A volunteer will call back to respond with helpful information. 6. Take time-lapse photos during the changing seasons. Pick a tree, view, or nature spot you like and document the changes with daily pictures as Spring arrives.

7. Use Broomfield’s Open Space and Parks mobile maps! Find trail connections and amenities in Broomfield open spaces and parks at OSPT.Broomfield.org. Use the Boulder Area Trails App at Trailsapp.org to measure your route distance, and explore beyond Broomfield. And take the Broomfield 100 Challenge at Broomfield.org/Broomfield100 to explore featured Broomfield trails and open spaces. Kids can try the downloadable Broomfield Nature Explorer booklet. 8. Learn to navigate the stars. The night sky in your backyard or nearest open space will change a little day by day! Search for free guides in your app store, such as SkyView Lite, Star Walk 2, or Night Sky to help you learn the constellations above you. 9. Locate one of your favorite peaks as you look out to the west at the Front Range. Use the Peak Finder graphic at Broomfield.org/PeakFinder to discover the different peaks you can see from Broomfield. 10. Take pictures of the sunrise and sunset, and tag Broomfield with @broomfield_co.
