Morning Bird Outing at Wheat Ridge Open Space
(Friday) 7:30 am - 10:30 am
Clear Creek Trail
Birds are drawn to riparian areas, so we'll bird along Clear Creek and adjacent ponds, looking for species such as Snowy Egrets, American Dippers, Cedar Waxwings and other goodies.
Birds are drawn to riparian areas, so we'll bird along Clear Creek and adjacent ponds, looking for species such as Snowy Egrets, American Dippers, Cedar Waxwings and other goodies. The 2.25-mile route is quite flat, though we'll transition from paved to natural surface trails to boardwalks. Part – but not all – of the trail would work for the mobility-challenged.
All are welcome, and no experience needed, other than enthusiasm!
Meet at the Youngfield entrance to the Wheat Ridge Greenway. More details will be given to registrants.
