The Kinney Run area is a riparian valley in an ecotone between the plains and the foothills at about 6,000 ft. Technically between the Lyons formation hogback and the Fountain formation foothills, this little known treasure includes a variety of resident and migrant songbirds and raptors. We will be joined by Denver Audubon Executive Director Karl Brummert and Laurel Starr from Stewards of Golden Open Space. Starting at Illinois St, (where you will park), we will walk south, under US-6, up the Kinney Run valley on a paved trail. The spring migrants have arrived!
