Backcountry Field Notes
Consider Backcountry Field Notes your local guide to all things conservation, education, and outdoor life.
Welcome to the Backcountry Field Notes, a blog to bring you all in on what’s happening in the HRCA Backcountry Wilderness Area, an 8,200-acre island of conservation unlike any other property on the Rocky Mountain Front Range. This space will allow us to share the goings on from projects in the dense ponderosa forests to information on local wildlife to tales of how a summer in the outdoors is impacting kids in our community.
"The Backcountry Wilderness Area is an 8,200-acre island of conservation unlike any other property on the Rocky Mountain Front Range."
There is something for everyone in the Backcountry Wilderness Area whether you are a walking book of nature know-how or a newbie looking to wander onto singletrack trails for the first time. As homes continue to dot the edges of our 13-square-mile wildlife habitat conservation property, this oasis of nature will become an even rarer gem of unbothered space in an otherwise quickly-growing metro area. There is a way for everyone to enjoy it.
So, keep checking back here. And if you have a burning question, need a suggestion, or think there is something people ought to know, leave us a note and we’ll see if we can delve into it in the Backcountry Field Notes.
