Mueller State Park Programs in June
Colorado Parks and Wildlife
The smell of a campfire and the echoing song of a hermit thrush await visitors to Mueller State Park in June. Life explodes in all directions with blooming wildflowers, singing birds and baby animals everywhere.
It also means the return on June 22 of our popular Outdoor Skills Day, a free opportunity for the whole family to sample a variety of outdoor recreation activities including fishing, caving, target shooting with shotguns, .22-caliber rifles and archery, bird watching, outdoor cooking, Bear Aware and much more.
The month of June is an exciting time in Mueller where you’ll catch a glimpse of nature’s treasures. Explore alone on our 44 miles of trails or join in a guided hike or naturalist program. Naturalists and volunteers at Mueller love to share the wonder and science of all the living things at the park.
Programs in June will highlight local wildlife, favorite flowers, unique features and local history at the park. We have programs for your entire family including children’s programs, evening amphitheater programs and bird watching.
Of special interest is our Thursday night series of history of the Pikes Peak region with volunteer naturalist Paul Thies, who has researched and created programs on the history of the Pikes Peak region. Each week, Thies will offer a new program on a different time and people including Native Americans, early explorers, military, fur traders, mining and railroads - all in the Pikes Peak region.
Receive expert instruction from CPW staff, Hunter Education instructors and conservation organizations like the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Mule Deer Foundation, Pheasants Forever.
Mueller events are free however, an $8 daily pass or $80 annual pass is required to enter the park. For more information, call the park at 719-687-2366.
