Rocky Mountain National Park's 415 square miles holds a diversity of wildlife including 66 species of mammals and over 280 species of birds. Spring is a rewarding time to observe some of these animals and their offspring as the area begins to sprout with new life!
Join an education ranger as they introduce five of these animals, noting the differences between their parents and offspring, while exploring the characteristics that help them survive in this diverse landscape.
