On this episode of Big Blend Radio, Reghan Cloudman, US Forest Service Public Affairs, gives and overview of Pawnee National Grassland, a popular bird watching and recreational destination located 35 miles east of Fort Collins and 25 miles northeast of Greeley in Weld County, Colorado. Covering 193,060 acres of short grass plains, the Grassland is an internationally recognized birding area that supports many bird species including lark buntings, mountain plovers, burrowing owls and many birds of prey. Pronghorn, mule deer, coyote, swift fox, snakes and prairie dogs are just a few of the species that also make the prairie their home. Hiking, camping, picnicking, horseback riding and stargazing are also popular activities.
