Presented by Pikes Peak Posse of the Westerners at Colorado Springs Masonic Center

East of the city boundaries is a new property owned by the Colorado Springs Parks Department. Rich in history, geologically unique and generally pristine – it was named in the 1800’s as Corral Bluffs, a namesake derived from the cattle drive days.

This 600-acre parcel is being researched at this time in preparation for a future Master Planning process.

Jackie Hilaire, the president of the friends group Corral Bluffs Alliance (CoBA) is going to present a quick overview/introduction of the area along with some fascinating history.

Find out the reasons for this area becoming designated a Colorado Natural Area, a major research area for multiple disciplines, and hopefully, some place new for you to visit.

Jackie is a retired systems engineer and long time Colorado resident. She completed work with the Horticultural Arts Society, city parks board, TOPS, city Art Commission, LART, and continues on the GoG Foundation and CoBA boards. CoBA holds a hike permit for the CBOS leading guided hikes in the area.

Membership in the Pikes Peak Posse of the Westerners is open to individuals with an interest in Western history. Guests are welcome!
