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.

This trip is limited to the first 15 registrations.
This is a trip that will focus on the western portion of the Greenway trail and some of the surrounding paths. We may carpool to an area closer to the action or we may just start our walk right from the Visitors Center. The center opens at 9 and has indoor restrooms. Ahead of that, there is a portable toilet in the parking area available before the trip.
We will be birding prairie, lake, and hopefully a playa. This is the early part of fall migration; Bird activity is quite variable at this time. We should see juvenile birds and a migrant or two. We will be walking flat, wide trails as far east as the Uvalda Trail. Along the way, we may venture off of the Greenway trail at places such as the Woodland trail, Havana Ponds, Lower Derby, or Rod and Gun Club area.
Bring water, snacks, binoculars, insect repellent (or attractant, if you like that sort of thing), a scope if you feel like carrying one for hours, and an appreciation of all birds common or uncommon - just in case all we see are the common type. Register online or contact the leader.
