(Developing Birder Trip)
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 6 registrations.
We will use Gilpin County as our context for increasing your confidence and skills for planning trips to geographic areas and/or habitats you are less familiar with. We will dig into features of eBird and other resources, and focus on how to use them to design the type of trip you’re looking for, whether it’s seeing a new part of Colorado, county birding, or on vacation and looking for a few good outings while you’re there.
This trip is intended for anyone interested in learning more about designing trips for birding not only hotspots, but beyond the hotspots and in a more intentional way.
Please bring food, water, and layers, including a shell, as mountain weather in Colorado can be highly variable and change quickly. Restrooms are available at the meeting location, and then will be limited. Plan to walk 1-2 miles on uneven trails at moderate elevation. We will carpool, ideally in two cars, due to limited parking in many areas.
