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.

This trip is limited to the first 8 registrations.

We will follow up on a Williamson's Sapsucker nest found on a recent visit by the leader and enjoy other woodpeckers  and breeding birds in the Montane (aspen/ponderosa) forest of this lovely park. We will drive up Coal Creek Canyon Road (Hwy. 72)  and enter the park from the north side on Gap Road.  Just north of the park entrance, we will stop by a large meadow where Vesper and  Lincoln’s Sparrows are nesting.  In the park, we will make short stops in different habitats (i.e., spruce/fir; ponderosa) to listen and look  for different species, including Dusky and Cordilleran Flycatcher.  When we reach the steep Mountain Base Rd., which plunges through  aspen/willow groves, we will take a short hike where the sapsuckers and other foothills birds are nesting at ~8,500’. Bring plenty of water.  Let’s plan on eating lunch by the Visitor’s Center.  Register online or contact the leader.
