Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

You'll never look at an urban tree in quite the same way after you've been on the Fall Tree Walk offered annually on the University of Colorado at Boulder campus by the CU Museum of Natural History. That 's because it's leaf-peeping with a purpose, a serene evening stroll led by an expert, with stops along the way to take in every autumnal shade. The walk includes trees from around the world, as well what's purported to be Colorado's oldest cottonwood. But, really, this is just a great excuse to take a beautiful walk in the waning light of dusk, when the golds glow eerily against the purple sky. And it's free.

Meet at 5 p.m. today on the south side of the museum; the tour repeats at the same time tomorrow. The rest will unfold. Ah.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
