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.
The Skunk Canyon trail system begins in riparian shrub habitat and ascends through sunny grasslands into thick conifer habitat. It's a great place to see and hear a wide variety of breeding foothills birds. We will meet at the NCAR Mesa Lab parking lot and make a short carpool to the trailhead. Plan to walk 3-4 miles mostly on singletrack trails with about 500 ft elevation gain. The trails are well maintained although there are several short steep and rocky sections. There are no restrooms at the trailhead or along the trail, but the NCAR visitor center has restrooms and will be open when we return to the parking lot.
