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.

Habitats to bird: Conifer Forest, Riparian
We will start off Fall with a trip to the Riparian/foothill scrub habitats mixed with ponderosa pine. We'll look for the resident nuthatches, woodpeckers, dippers, and corvids. We'll also try to find some migrants as they are passing through. Trails are narrow in places with approximately 200-ft elevation gain and loss on the loop away from and above Bear Creek. There are portions of the trail with uneven rock surfaces so if you need additional balance or support bring your hiking poles. Expect to share the trail with runners, bikers, and horses. Composting toilets near the parking lot. Trip of 2.5 to 3 miles. We will meet at the Lair o' the Bear parking lot which is 4.5 miles from the western-most traffic signal in Morrison. Bring water, sunscreen, snacks, and binocs. Chilly at 7 a.m. but hot later.
