Walk for about 3 miles along the South Platte River exploring ponds, riparian forest, and grassland habitats for resident and migratory birds as the season dictates. We always have a surprise! This is a great opportunity to learn about the birds of the Denver area. Beginners are welcome. Trails are moderately easy, but do contain rocks, tree roots and poison ivy. Bring a scope if you have one; some loaner equipment may be available.
Everyone is welcome – beginners to advanced birders of all ages. Hike along the South Platte River looking for late summer/fall resident birds and fall migrants. Wear sun protection, long pants, and closed shoes (there’s poison ivy along the trail). We can lend you binoculars and field guides, if needed.
