Audubon's 122nd Christmas Bird Count is a holiday tradition – everyone welcome: beginners, intermediate, and advanced. The more eyes we have, the more birds we see. In partnership with National Audubon, Denver Audubon supports the bird count within the Denver Urban circle on Saturday, January 1, 2022.
This is the Cherry Creek route of the Denver Urban Christmas Bird Count. We will conduct our bird count along a 7-mile stretch of the Cherry Creek Trail from the Cherry Creek Dam to University Blvd. We will be travelling along the trail, so there is no option to drive the route by car. The trail is paved and mostly flat. Restroom access is minimal. We will have the opportunity to stop for lunch (and warm up) at a restaurant near mile 3.
We will meet in the southwest corner of the parking lot of the Target store (4301 E Virginia Avenue, Glendale, CO) at 8:00a.m. From there, we will carpool to the south end of the route near the Kennedy Park Baseball Fields (2998 S. Kenton Street, Aurora, CO). Please contact John Sakulich (firstname.lastname@example.org or 720-732-8100) to coordinate a meeting location. Note that this field trip is not accessible for those with mobility challenges.
