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.

For this field trip we will walk the trail around Lake Ladora and if time permits also bird at neighboring Lake Mary. This trip is scheduled at about the mid-point of the fall shorebird migration and should be a good opportunity to work on our shorebird ID skills! The trail here is relatively flat and wide. The habitat is riparian with large cottonwoods and cattail marsh. The total distance is about 2 to 3 miles. There are pit toilets at this parking area and porta-potties nearby. Birders of all experience levels are welcome. Be sure to dress for the weather and bring water and snacks.
Meet at the parking lot on Northwest corner of Lake Ladora. To get to the parking lot from the main entrance of the refuge, make the first right turn on 64th Avenue; travel east to the 4 way stop at Havana Street; turn left (North) onto Havana Street and go about a mile to the "contact" station. There are signs for the lakes and contact station before the turn. Go right, up a small hill and past the contact station, past the parking lot for Lake Mary, and up a short hill to the Lake Lodora parking lot. Register online or contact the leader.
