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.

Six years ago this weekend was DFO's first field trip at First Creek. If the past holds true, look for abundant winter raptors. If the creek is flowing, expect riparian-cottonwood prairie species. We will walk 1.5 miles of paved path along the creek upstream to Tower Road and back. We'll also cover at least one-half mile of old Buckley Road, the pedestrian-bicycle strip along Rocky Mountain Arsenal NWR's east boundary fence. Time permitting, we'll dip into the Arsenal on the First Creek trail for more birds. Dress for the weather, bring water and snacks. No restrooms at this location. "Go before we go" at the King Soopers on Tower Road (Green Valley Ranch). Register online or contact the leader.
