All ages and abilities welcome! Join Chuck Aid for our Third-Saturday Bird Walk on September 16, from 7:00 to 12:00. Chatfield State Park surrounds the large reservoir built at the confluence of the South Platte River, Deer Creek, and Plum Creek.  The lake can be very good for waterfowl and shorebirds, while the extensive cottonwood gallery forests can have lots of small landbirds.  In addition, portions of the park have shortgrass prairie.  The diversity of habitats results in the park having the greatest bird species diversity of any other location in the southwest metro area. We’ll visit a variety of locations and do some walking.

Bring water, a snack, and rain gear. Meet at the Evergreen Library at 7:00 AM.

There is a fee charged in order to enter this park, so make sure to have some cash just in case. A few of us have annual passes so we may be fine.

These walks are for Evergreen Audubon members and their guests. Non-members won’t be turned away, but will be encouraged to join Evergreen Audubon. You must register here to attend this event.  If you are registering for more than one person, please enter each person separately.

Thanks!

Chuck Aid, Director of Bird Monitoring
