The Preston Outing Club is seeking another Special Event Permit to bring Preston Middle School Students to Horsetooth Mountain Park for a Moonlight Hike of Horsetooth Rock. This is an annual event for Preston which seeks to educate our local community on the natural beauty of our surrounding area. Our goal with this hike is to promote ethical enjoyment of the outdoors.

As trip leader, I am well familiar with the trail systems in the park. I also have a Wilderness First Responder certification.

Consistency of activity with missions of Larimer County Natural Resources Department

including riparian areas, wetlands, rare plants and plant communities and sensitive

? Impacts on other users/uses of Larimer County parks and open spaces (safety,
