“This is a great way to celebrate fall and enjoy crafts, activities and mini-education lessons appropriate for people of all ages,” Yampatika Program Director Kellie Gorman was quoted as saying in a release. “For the younger kids, there will be a pumpkin patch, activities focused on moose education and loads of hands-on fun. And for the older kids and adults, there will be education sessions, demonstrations and a photo booth. Legacy Ranch is a historical landmark that provides for self-guided walking tours, as well.”

Gorman said the event is being offered free to the public thanks to donors and sponsors, including Alpine Bank, Lift FM, Moving Mountains, Twin Enviro, Tread of Pioneers, Colorado Mountain Collage, U.S. Forest Service and Yampa Valley Sustainability Council.
