Catamount pleased with Beidleman Center ECO-DAY

       The Beidleman Environmental Center opened to the public June 12 for its ECO-
        DAY that included hikes, water experiments, birds of prey and other activities.
        The public event, the first since the Catamount Institute moved its offices to the center in the Mesa Springs area in March, went well, according to Carol Bruce-Fritz, Catamount's chief development officer. “We're hoping to do more things like this in the future,” she said.
       Another Beidleman event, a morning wildflower walk along the mesas of Sondermann Park, is scheduled Saturday, June 26. The hike, from 9 to 10:30 a.m., will be led by Doris Drisgill of the Native Plant Society and is co-sponsored by Catamount Institute, Colorado Springs Utilities and the Friends of Beidleman Environmental Center. There is no cost and no reservations are required. Meet at the center, 740 W. Caramillo Street.
