Running Deer Natural Area
2943 E. Prospect
Fort Collins, CO 80525
Natural Area: Birding, Picnic, Walk
As its name suggests, deer love Running Deer because of the plentiful food, water and shelter for them here. Visitors may see deer either bedded down or running across the site. In spring and summer, you may see American white pelicans flying low over Running Deer as they head for the ponds at adjacent Cottonwood Hollow Natural Area. Thank you to Great Outdoors Colorado who provided a grant to help purchase this site.
