Field Guide: Plants of Pueblo Mountain Park

About This Event

The park's wildflowers are popping up as the springtime takes hold. If you would like a field guide to help you identify the many wildflowers that call Pueblo Mountain Park home, then PLANTS OF PUEBLO MOUNTAIN PARK is the perfect companion to have with you as you walk the park's roads or hike its trails.

Written by MPEC's Founder Dave Van Manen, the book provides an in-depth look at dozens of wildflowers found in the park, as well as the many shrubs and trees that grow in the park.

The book's subtitle, FOOTHILLS & MONTANE FLORA OF COLORADO'S SOUTHEASTERN MOUNTAINS, says a lot about the value of the book as a guide to identifying plants way beyond the boundaries of the Mountain Park. To quote the book: "Due to the park's unusual botanical diversity, many of the species found in the park are also found outside its borders, both and near and far from the park. The book will have value in identifying plants found along much of Colorado's Front Range and south into northern New Mexico...."

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

I teach yoga part time and am a mom of two toddlers full time. I love my life, but goodness do I need a break. My husband and I have been putting off our wedding ceremony for 4 years because life has gotten in the way. We haven't had a single night alone since our family has grown. I wouldn't change a thing about our lives now, but it would be so wonderful to remember what it's like to 'just be us.' Antrim

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
