Join DFO or Renew Your Membership

Your membership fee enables Denver Field Ornithologists to offer monthly programs and field trips free of charge. Please join today!

DFO field trips take participants into diverse habitats every week of the year. The mix of participants on a typical outing offers opportunities for beginners to learn from intermediates and intermediates from experts. As your ability and experience grow, you may even step up to become a DFO field trip leader yourself.

Eight months of the year, DFO offers evening programs to share birding experiences and hear prominent birders and experts discuss the lives of birds, birding destinations both exotic and familiar, recent discoveries about avian life, and current issues in bird and habitat conservation.

DFO supports science and learning about birds via our Research, Education & Conservation Grant Fund and our club’s citizen science projects. Our Conservation Committee works to communicate about what each of us can do to protect birds and their habitats. Our monthly newsletter, The Lark Bunting, this website and our Facebook and Instagram pages help keep members informed about DFO events and provide interesting information about Colorado birds.

During the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and quarantine, DFO promotes alternative ways to keep connected and birding. We present our monthly programs and other events online via Zoom teleconferencing. We encourage individual members to continue birding responsibly with trusted friends at safe distance until the club can resume group field trips when the pandemic has passed.
