Join botanist Al Schneider for a winter plant identification hike at Morefield Campground on Saturday, March 12, beginning at 9:00 am.  The guided hike is free, but advance sign-up is requested.  This hike is recommended for individuals who are high school age to adult.  Participants will meet at the Morefield Village parking lot and then explore the hillsides around the Morefield Campground, learning how to identify plants in the winter when their foliage is not present.

Be prepared to be outdoors for 2-3 hours with extra layers of clothing, water, and snacks.  There is a limit of 15 participants.  If needed, snowshoes will be provided, or you may bring your own.  To sign up, for weather conditions, and for more information on the hike, please call the Chapin Mesa Museum at 970-529-4631.  A flyer with  more information and other upcoming hikes can be found at  For more information about Mesa Verde National Park, please visit our website at
