Introduction — 2010 Series:
The Colorado Lifescape

This year-long series, presented one each month, will address the diversity of wildlife in Colorado. Just as water, soils, and rocks combine to establish the character of physical landscapes, our many fungi, plants, and animals combine in diverse assemblages to create "lifescapes." Focusing on one wildlife group each month, we will discover the essence of Colorado by examining the character of its lifescapes.



January — Colorado Lifescape 1:
The Trees of Colorado


February — Colorado Lifescape 2:
The Grasses of Colorado

March — Colorado Lifescape 3:
The Shrubs of Colorado


April — Colorado Lifescape 4:
The Mammals of Colorado

Speaking of mammals brings iconic images to mind: cottontails on lawns, squirrels at birdfeeders, elk in mountain meadows. Most people can name about 12 different mammals – 20 with some prompting – that live wild in Colorado, a mere 10-15 percent of our statewide mammal diversity. Come learn the mammals that enrich Colorado’s treeland, grassland, and shrubland lifescapes.

May — Colorado Lifescape 5:
The Herptiles of Colorado


June — Colorado Lifescape 6:
The Insects of Colorado

July — Colorado Lifescape 7:
The Ferns of Colorado


August — Colorado Lifescape 8:
The Sunflowers of Colorado

September — Colorado Lifescape 9:
The Mollusks of Colorado

October — Colorado Lifescape 10:
The Mushrooms of Colorado

November — Colorado Lifescape 11:
The Fishes of Colorado

December — Colorado Lifescape 12:
