New iNat Guides!

We've recently updated all of the iNat guides for each of our State Parks! These guides can be a valuable resource for identifying an unknown organism you have found! The guides allow you to filter by using tags that have been added for color and/or group (trees, reptiles, birds, flowering plants, etc). Please search the name of the park you’re interested in at

These guides should not be considered fully comprehensive of all species that may occur in our State Parks, but it should represent nearly all of the common plant and animal species (except for insects) and many of the less common species. Species included in the guides are the “Research Grade” iNaturalist observations as well as species that have been documented over the last 25 years by our Resource Stewardship Program. We update our guides every couple of years to account for new species observed by YOU at the parks!

Have fun and be safe out there!

I have been observing wildlife at Pueblo Reservoir before it was a State Park and the dam was being built beginning in 1973. I just checked the list and looked at the mammals and several species that need to be reviewed. Abert's Squirrel (a Ponderosa Pine species) and Golden Mantled Ground Squirrels are not in this area. My expertise is birds, and I've seen 275 species myself. You might look at ebird they have a list of 341 species for Pueblo Reservoir. Best of luck on your listing endeaver. Van Truan
