Trip Registration



As part of your registration, in order to participate in a Denver Field Ornithologists, Inc. (“DFO”) trip or other activities designated by the Board of Directors, each adult participant and the parent of a minor participant (those under 18 yrs. of age) are required to review and sign (either electronically or manually) a DFO Acknowledgment and Assumption of Risks & Release and Indemnity Agreement (sometimes “Agreement”) Completing this document involves your acceptance of binding contract terms. This online registration system allows you to review and electronically sign the Agreement if you do not have one on file. If you would prefer to manually sign a printable version of the Agreement, you may access it here, and present it to the leader before trip start. If you choose this option, please contact your leader to assure you are signed up for the trip.

Please note: Each person, including each family member choosing to sign the Agreement electronically must login and have a separate account so that the agreement is tied to the individual. If you are having difficulty with multiple logins, please contact us for assistance. *Minors: If participant is a minor, the minor’s parent or legal guardian must print out, review and sign a paper copy of the Agreement and present it to the leader before the trip start. Any minor attending must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian.

Logged in users who have a signed Agreement on file will have the opportunity to print or save it at any time. Click on the link to the printable copy and use your browser functions to save or print.


Meet Your Trip Leader
Pine Valley Ranch
5/15/2021      7:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Leader: John Breitsch   jbreitsch@hotmail.com or 303-588-0552
Trail Difficulty: Moderate
Directions
Head south on US 285 past Conifer to Pine Junction. There, turn left on Pine Valley Rd and continue for just under 6 miles. Turn right onto Crystal Lake Rd and go 1.1 miles to the parking lot. The park address is 30400 Crystal Lake Road Pine Grove, CO 80470.

This trip is limited to the first 6 registrations.

The habitats at PVR include Ponderosa Forest, Willows, and Mixed-Conifer Forest. Pine Valley Ranch has hosted nesting Common Mergansers for several years. The primary objective for this trip is to see if we can find some young mergansers hanging around behind or on top of momma merg. We may be early for this, but their breeding varies from year to year. After exploring the lake area, we will venture out on the trails in search of woodpeckers, vireos, warblers, flycatchers, and a hawk or two. Bring the usual suspects: Water, binoculars, sunscreen, etc. Scopes optional for the first part of the trip (probably not much fun carrying them up the trails. During this field trip, please strive to maintain 6 feet of “social distance” separation. Do not carpool to the trip except with members of your own household. Although state and county health guidance about masks outdoors is changing, participants must have masks and should wear them whenever they cannot keep social distance. Register online or contact the leader.
