Eco Adventures, Outdoor Excursions and Kids Programs
Telluride, Colorado (May 17, 2011) -Did you know the alarm system for beaver communities is a loud "SLAP" of a tail on the water's surface? Did you know that jeep tours up Imogene Pass take you through the ghost town of Tomboy, with all of its rich history, to the top of the third highest 4x4 pass in Colorado? At Telluride Eco Adventures , adults and children alike can come and learn about the hundreds of things that make up our fascinating history and environment, as well as take advantage of all the region has to offer.
Eco Adventures offers outdoor programs, information and booking services for all the activities in the Telluride region. From fly fishing on serene mountain streams to afternoons filled with exciting plant & animal discoveries, hiking the great alpine trails to rafting the mighty San Miguel River, there is something for everyone.
