About the Trip
Our first March spring trip to this location, where meandering Second Creek snakes like a garden hose through suburban open space north of Rocky Mountain Arsenal and west of DIA. Home to prairie songbirds, raptors and 20-plus other Plains species. We'll look for early spring migrants and returnees, walking fields and trees at north end to start. Then we loop upstream (south) and back past prairie dog towns, cattail marshes and an active red-tailed hawk nest in adjacent Buckley Ranch Open Space. Expect to walk 3-plus miles on level trail, with some bushwhacking through grass and weeds. Dress for the weather and bring water, snacks and sun protection (very few trees). Register online or contact leader for more information.
