Summer in full swing at the MPEC!

Summer is here, and I am liking it! The wet spring has the land sporting tall grasses and lots of wildflowers. Rumbles of thunder and a pretty good chance of rain seem to define the afternoons. The MPEC is humming with activity: camps, hikes, and lots of other programs. Check out our website at www.hikeandlearn.org for information on upcoming programs. Then come on out to Pueblo Mountain Park and enjoy this beautiful summer with us!


Summer Solstice in Beulah beats the heat!

Summer was welcomed by around 50 of us, ages 1 - ?, drumming in the new season outside the historic Horseshoe Lodge. A great time was had by all on a lovely evening in a lovely setting!


Community Ice Cream Social!

Come Join MPEC for a community-wide ice cream social. We're renovating the Horseshoe Lodge and breathing new life into this historic gem at Pueblo Mountain Park. Enjoy ice cream, a slide presentation, tour the Lodge and view our plans for renovation.

It'll be yummy.
