Click the Details button to view complete trip information and register for a trip. Trips highlighted in green are filled, but register to be added to the waiting list. Often, some original registrants drop out, opening spots to those on the waiting list. 

Please help us make DFO field trips better. Read our condensed guidelines or even better, check out the full document BETTER BIRDING WITH DFO: How to Get the Most Out of Your Denver Field Ornithologists Field Trip.

Please note:

  • You must register as an individual (separate login) so that the liability waiver on file is attached to your registration.
  • If you are having trouble registering multiple individuals in the same family membership, please contact the Field Trip Chair (see "Leadership" list in the "About DFO" section of the website).

DFO follows the guidance of the CDC and Colorado Dept of Public Health and Environment regarding Covid-19. Our goal is to create an environment where all are welcome, comfortable, respectful and considerate of one another's safety. For this reason, DFO recommends that all participants bring face masks to be used as needed. When carpooling, vehicle owners have complete and sole authority about Covid safety measures in their vehicles.
