Living in the state of Colorado means that we have such a rich opportunity to observe, engage, and interact with countless species of plants, insects, and wildlife. And you don't have to go to the mountains to do this! So ask yourself these questions: "What kind of flora and fauna can I find in my own neighborhood? My own backyard? Outside my window?"
