10th annual Habitat (Scar) hike set Aug. 27

       The 10th annual 5K Hike the Habitat (formerly Scale the Scar) will be Saturday, Aug. 27.
       Registration is at 8 a.m. at the gate of the newly named Greg Francis Bighorn Sheep Habitat near the Navigators Headquar-ters on 30th Street. The site is a wildlife habitat for about 50 bighorn sheep.
       There is a fee to join the excursion, during which participants will receive breakfast, a T-shirt, a massage, entertainment and giveaways.
       The costs are $17.50 for adults who register in advance ($20 on the day of the hike) and $15 per child. Children must be accompanied by a guardian or parent.
       Hike proceeds help the Colorado Mountain Reclamation Foundation (CMRF) reclaim the scars from a former quarry operation by planting trees and shrubs. According to CMRF project manager Wanda Reaves, “Hikers can see more than 6,000 trees planted by thousands of community volunteers.”
       For more information, call Reaves at 442-6949 or e-mail her at cmrfwr@aol.com.
