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.

Apex Park is a Jefferson County Park. It is a vertical park in a narrow corridor between Heritage Square on the lower eastern edge to Lookout Mountain road on the upper western side. It is steep in places. The lower slopes are somewhat exposed and can be very hot on a summer day. We will explore the lower meadow and then walk upward slowly for about 2-3 hrs, Then we will turn and drop back down the way we came. Apex offers a variety of bird-rich habitats. Wear sturdy footwear and bring water and snacks. Apex now only allows hikers on the "main" trail on odd days of the month. This has made it a much nicer bird spot. Be prepared to help trip leader ID birds!!! This parking lot can be hard to find. If you use Google maps go to "Apex trail" If you haven't been to Apex before, feel free to call trip leader about meeting. Register online or contact the leader.
