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.

Enjoy a session on Dinosaur Ridge with the experts. Observe migrating raptors during peak season. In addition, we may spot local birds such as White-throated Swift, Rock Wren, Townsend Solitaire, Bushtit and more. We will meet in the Stegosaurus Parking Lot at 9:30 AM for introductions before embarking on a 0.6 mile trail with a 260' elevation gain to reach the Hawk Watch platform. This ascent typically takes 30 to 35 minutes, and we may encounter mud, snow and ice along the way. We will observe from the platform for the entire duration of the trip, returning to our cars by 2:30 PM. Dress in layers for warmth and wind protection. Apply sunscreen and lip protection. Pack your sun hat, lunch, water and snacks. Bring a scope, if you have one. Restrooms are NOT available on the ridge. The closest restrooms are located across the road, in Matthews/Winters Park, 100 yards south of the parking lot.
