3rd Annual Pikes Peak Birding & Nature Festival
Friday, May 19: 5/19/2017 : 4:00 PM - 5/21/2017 : 12:00 PM
Spring migration in the Colorado Rocky Mountains is often full of surprises. And El Paso County, where the short-grass prairies rise to meet the majestic top of Pikes Peak, has much to offer.
Join Flammulated Owl researcher, Dr. Brian Linkhart, in the Manitou Experimental Forest to look for these diminutive raptors. Or visit a working cattle ranch to learn how ranchers and birders work together to preserve critical bird habitat. Stroll around a mountain lake looking and listening for returning summer residents or enjoy a hike in the aromatic junipers and scrub oaks of a foothill riparian area. Go higher in elevation and see what birds call the montane forests their home. Hike with a botanist and learn about the plants in the region.
Visit the Pikes Peak Birding & Nature Festival website for festival information, registration, speaker bios, and field trip descriptions to help you decide how to spend your weekend in and around the Front Range. There are events for everyone, including dynamic birding field trips and appealing seminars and workshops.
