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 11 registrations.
The South Platte River remains largely open while our lakes are largely frozen this time of year. We will have the opportunity to view these wintering waterfowl. Also, the Metro Wastewater Reclamation sends warm waste water into the South Platte River. Many species enjoy the incoming warm waste water from the spillway and food for land birds alike. We will walk the level bike path for 3-4 miles with potential gulls, raptors, waterfowl and Black-crowned Night Heron.
Varying weather temps so bring layers of clothing, binoculars and water. Please be mindful of directions ahead of the trip. Register online or contact the leader.
