Today’s Guided nature Program…


Join us on the mountain for this installment of our Guided Nature Program— Bogus’ Mid-Summer Bloomers. The flowers, trees, and shrubs of summer will be examined on a walk through some of the different ecosystems of the montane forest, aspen woodland, and sagebrush meadows. Emphasis will be on how plants have adapted to different habitats and the aspects of pollination ecology. This program is only one of the many guided nature programs offered this summer.

Meet your Guide!

Hit the trail with Ray Vizgirdas, retired Wildlife Biologist and lifelong Naturalist for this installment of our Guided Snowshoe Program series. With over three decades of experience working for state and federal agencies, Ray knows a thing or two about the outdoors (he has literally authored guidebooks about the flora at Bogus Basin!). On select Saturday afternoons, Ray will cover a new topic relevant to the time of year. Whether it’s winter animal adaptations or emergency snow shelters, you’re bound to learn a thing or two on your outing.
