What we're about

This group is for anyone who wants to learn more about the natural world.

My name is Lauren Bond Kovsky and I am a naturalist and canoe guide based in Boulder, CO. My main offerings are canoe trips on local rivers where you will see an incredible diversity of wildlife and the hidden beauty of eastern river corridors.

I also offer low cost and donation based outings for anyone interested in plants, animals, birds, wild edibles, geology, survival skills, and more! There will be a different theme for each outing.

We've watched baby owls grow up, eaten berries and other wild edibles, laughed a whole lot, taken some incredible photos, made plaster casts of tracks, watched eagles fly overhead, found fossils in the foothills, had an incredible blustery snowshoeing adventure, and more!

Our members come from a wide range of backgrounds, fitness levels, and ages. We all enjoy stopping to smell the flowers, take photos, and eat berries.

Our outings are designed to be accessible to everyone. We take our time and stop on the trail regularly to explore our surroundings and look at the birds. We have a ton of fun, learn a lot, and we love meeting new people!

Please see my website- http://www.theriverspath.org for more information on my background and the other offerings I have. You can also find out information on the http://www.meetup.com/Boulder-Naturalist-Outings/about/ page of the meetup site. Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions or concerns!
