As part of our Birding Without Barriers series, enjoy this birding hotspot accessible to those with mobility challenges.
Whether you are use a wheelchair or are someone who just needs to move at a slower pace, or with assistance, please join us for this fall field trip to beautiful Prospect Park in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. We will meet at the parking lot at the end of the loop around Prospect Lake (see map – enter from 44th Avenue). Fall is beautiful here, and we will travel up to 1.5 miles using wheelchair friendly pathways. We will enjoy excellent views of two small lakes and some very special riparian and wetland habitat.
Denver Audubon’s Birding Without Barriers (BWB) program was created to help mobility challenged folks enjoy the birds and the beauty of special places like this. The trip will be led by a trained Audubon Master Birder, and everyone will spot migrating and resident songbirds and waterfowl. Dress for the (usually) cool but unpredictable weather and bring water, sunscreen, and a lunch or snack.
For more information, please contact Robert (Bob) Roark at (303) 319-9404.
