We will bird along Hanover Road on our way to Chico Basin Ranch. Chico Basin Ranch is a working cattle ranch located in El Paso/Pueblo counties southeast of Colorado Springs. The driving distance from Lone Tree will be approximately 115 miles, a little over two hours. The ranch will be birded by following the ranch roads in vehicles with stops to bird on level open areas such as ponds, wetlands, and grasslands. This will be an all-day trip so bring water, snacks, and lunch. Scopes will be handy but not necessary. A two-way radio per car would be helpful. We will bird until 4 p.m. and should be back at Lone Tree around 6 p.m. This is a fee area @ $10 per person. In addition, the DFO policy is .30cents per mile divided by the number of passengers in the car. We need volunteers with high clearance vehicles to drive on ranch roads. Let leader know if you can drive. Chico is a great place in May! This trip is rated "Strenuous" due to the long drive. There will be uneven ground and shorter walking distances. Register online or contact leader.
