For a teaching opportunity during the summer, take the kids to the Yampa River Botanic Park, a botanical area where visitors can learn about local wildflowers and fauna. There are intense speed bumps on the way in, but once inside, this place is impressive considering how small Steamboat Springs is. The layout of the gardens is thoughtful, well conceived, and display an array of flowers beautifully. Take the young ones to the children’s garden and let them splash around in the small pond. If you’re a gardener, make sure to take notes on how the caretakers mind the plants in this extreme, high altitude climate. It is free to get in, but they graciously accept any donations in order to maintain the park.
