PLEASE NOTE: You must register for this field trip and complete the liability form when you register. Walk-up or impromptu participants will not be allowed. Other requirements are described below.
All levels of experience are welcome. We are hoping to see an assortment of waterfowl, wintering sparrows, great blue heron if we are lucky, bald eagle, and more. The walk will be approximately 1.5 miles on relatively flat terrain. The path is a combination of gravel and dirt. We will be meeting at the Sawhill Ponds Trailhead parking lot. As with any December walk in Colorado, dress in warm layers and wear shoes you wouldn't mind getting a little muddy. For more information, please call Matthew Boyer at 785-764-1184. Please note also that this field trip is not accessible for those with mobility challenges.
