Post 'Bighorn Sheep Day' Feb 17, 2007
SECOND ANNUAL COLORADO SPRINGS ‘BIGHORN SHEEP DAY’ FEB. 17

Wildlife enthusiasts are invited to honor bighorn sheep at the second annual “Colorado Springs Bighorn Sheep Day” Saturday, Feb. 17 in Colorado Springs. Events take place from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the Garden of the Gods Park Visitor’s Center at 1805 N. 30th St.

Events include wildlife viewing stations, guided nature walks, children’s interactive wildlife programs and seminars about bighorn sheep. All of the activities are free and open to the public.

Bighorn sheep are the official Colorado state animal. Herds of sheep are often spotted by summer visitors on Pikes Peak, but the group near Garden of the Gods and Queens Canyon is visible at lower elevations – especially in the winter.

“This is a great time of year to view bighorn sheep from the Garden of the Gods Visitor’s Center,” said John Koshak of the Colorado Division of Wildlife. “We will have spotting scopes set up, but visitors who have their own binoculars are urged to bring them with them.”

For more information call John Koshak at (719) 227-5221 or the Garden of the Gods Visitors and Nature Center at (719) 219-0108.

The “Bighorn Sheep Day” co-sponsors are the Garden of the Gods Visitor & Nature Center, Colorado Springs City Parks, Recreation & Cultural Services, USFS, Experience Colorado Springs at the Peak, Colorado Division of Wildlife, and the Rocky Mountain Bighorn Society.
