This is an easy to moderate trip with flat and well-packed trails taking us to a place where Bald Eagles and other raptors are congregating and nesting. There is a plethora of waterfowl including Geese, Shovelers, Pintails, Goldeneyes, Buffleheads, and Mergansers. There is also a nice variety songbirds.
We'll meet at the Visitor Center at Barr Lake at 9:30 a.m. If you have any questions, please contact Bob Roark, the field trip leader, at email@example.com or 303-319-9404.
Be prepared for chilly weather as the breeze coming off of the lake can be stiff. Other items: water, snacks, and binoculars are all helpful.
