UPDATE: The Standley Lake Monster is Coming to Metzger Farm!

We have heard from expert monster trackers that the Standley Lake Monster will be traveleing up the Big Dry Creek Trail to visit Metzger Farm Open Space (12080 Lowell Blvd.) from July 16-20. Check the Metzger trails during this time and you might even find one of the monster's colorful eggs! Children may take the mystical eggs to Standley Lake Nature Center (9785 Eagle View Loop, Westminster 80021) for a certificate of authenticity. This is one of the challenges for the Broomfield 100 Nature Explorers!
