3:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Enjoy a brisk autumn evening, brilliant fall colors, and the echo of bull elk bugling in the pines on historic Evans Ranch with research associate Ron Beane. Established by Colorado’s second territorial governor, John Evans, Evans Ranch is nestled at the base of Mount Evans and is home to a wide array of Colorado wildlife. The Museum has received exclusive permission to visit this private ranch and experience the sights and sounds of elk in full rut. The group will hike the wooded areas to a secluded location near the elk where, at sundown, you will sit back, relax, and listen for the eerie evening sounds of the Colorado wilderness. A light meal and transportation to Evans Ranch is provided. Ages 12 and up are welcome. Space is limited and reservations are required.
All sales are final unless the Museum cancels the event.
