Sylvan Dale Ranch, Loveland


Location: Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch 


When: Saturday, March 23 from 8:15 AM to 4:00 PM


Cost: $200 per participant

Class Size: Maximum of 15 


8:15 AM -- Meet at the Hilltop Parking Lot

8:30 to 9:30 AM -- Presentation in the Heritage Room (Ranch Office)

9:45 AM to 4:00 PM -- Moderate Hike in Sulzer Gulch 

Join local wildlife videographer and conservationist David Neils for a deep dive on the habits and habitat of mountain lions in Northern Colorado.


You'll learn how to map the hunting and travel routes of these apex predators using four natural factors to view the landscape like a mountain lion, and capture weekly video of these elusive predators.


This workshop will focus on seven remote camera locations in the field where one or more of the four factors are in play. Each location will be discussed in depth and you'll visit all seven locations on the hike.


This is the best workshop for those who want to learn an incredible amount about mountain lions and capture the same footage that David captures weekly.






"I've 'known' about animals' enhanced olfactory senses but have never really appreciated the extent of that or how they're able to use terrain and weather patterns as a tool to exploit this strength until your talk. I'm sure many mammals have had a good laugh over my attempts to stalk them.
