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.

Bluff Lake Nature Center (BLNC) has become the top Denver County eBird hotspot over the last few years with 230 species reported so far. On this Patch birding trip we'll be joined by guest guide Steve Hebert who is a DFO Member and BLNC Board Member. Both Steve and I have birded Bluff Lake regularly for several years. Along with your birding gear bring your questions about Bluff Lake! For this trip we'll walk about 2.5 miles on the unpaved trails around the lake and along Sand Creek. There is a short boardwalk through part of the cattail marsh that provides a great view of the lake. In mid-October we have the potential to see a good variety of waterfowl on the lake and creek. We'll search the grassland habitat surrounding the lake for sparrows and listen for mixed flocks of passerines in the Cottonwood and Willow trees. Birders of all experience levels are welcome. We will meet near the building on the north side of the parking lot. The site is located at 11255 E. MLK Jr Blvd, Denver, CO 80238. There are port-a-potties in the parking area and near the boardwalk. Register online or contact the leader.
