Register Now!

Our ninth annual fundraiser will be a bit different than our usual "hike/bike/drive" fun. This year we'll be touring the historic Edgar Mine in Idaho Springs, learning about everything that goes into (and comes out of) mining. This walking tour takes us into the Edgar, which is now a training mine for the Colorado School of Mines, and includes informative presentations on historic and current mining techniques, mine safety, and the history of the Idaho Springs area. The tour will be led by trained staff and will include hard hats, lights and other safety equipment, if needed. The tour will last about an hour and will include plenty of walking; children four and up are welcome to join in the experience. 

After the mine tour, join us at Courtney Riles Cooper Park in Idaho Springs for pizza from Beau Jo's and beer (and delicious root beer!) from Tommyknocker's.  Register now or donate!


The Bedbug Hat Trick is an annual event benefiting the David L. Bucknam Memorial Scholarship Fund. Named after the Bucknam family's beloved Volkswagen camper bus, the Hat Trick brings together friends of the Fund to explore, have fun, and eat good food once a year.
