This spring trip will be along the beautiful Fountain Valley trail (2.4 mile), which has a mild change in elevation and a partially graveled terrain. We will see many year-round residents such as the Spotted Towhee and Woodhouse's Scrub-Jay, nuthatches, chickadees, and finches. Possibly we will spot a Golden Eagle or Prairie Falcon, as they breed in the park, a Canyon Wren, or Mountain Bluebirds. The first summer migrants may be arriving as well, such as White-throated Swifts, swallows, and warblers.
Meet at the Visitor's Center and bring water, binoculars, appropriate outdoor clothing, and snacks if desired. Scopes are optional. For more information, please call Bea Weaver at (305) 498-5935.
Please note that this trip is not accessible for those with mobility challenges.
