Join Denver Audubon and the Sand Creek Regional Greenway Partnership for another Birding Without Barriers program on the beautiful Sand Creek Greenway! This 2.5 mile out-and-back trip will start at the Wetland Loop trailhead in Commerce City and follow along the riparian habitat of the Sand Creek. The trail is mostly flat and paved and offers the opportunity to enjoy the wondrous birds and other animals who call the Greenway home. Bring binoculars, appropriate outdoor clothing, water, and sunscreen. Note that this field trip is accessible to those with mobility challenges. A restroom is available at trailhead and benches, shade, and picnic tables are available approximately every 1/4 mile.
Our meet-up location is the parking lot just east of the intersection of 52nd Avenue and Ivy Street in Commerce City, shown on this map as just west of the Front Range Trailhead, which is marked with a blue pin.
For more information, please call Bob Roark, trip leader, at (303) 319-9404.
