Eight months a year (January through April, August through November), DFO sponsors a free evening program on birds, wildlife conservation or another topic of interest to members and the general public. In 2019, these programs are being held at the Unity Spiritual Center Denver, 3021 S. University Blvd. in Denver. Programs are on on the fourth Monday of each month, 7 to 8:30 p.m., and are open to the public. Monthly reminders are sent to everyone registered with DFO via email. If, on occasion, the meeting date or location has to be changed, it will be announced in The Lark Bunting newsletter and posted on this website.

Better Birding Workshops
Better Birding Workshops are a new initiative of DFO to help people improve their birding skills. Workshops will focus on species identification, birdsong, the use of online birding tools, seasonal migration and other field topics. The DFO Knowledge and Learning Committee welcomes your ideas for future workshops.
Citizen science is research and data gathering by community members. DFO promotes this public participation in scientific observation and study to help improve understanding of the birds we love to see and watch. Click on Learn More to find out about current DFO "cit-sci" projects and how you can participate, both on club-led trips or your own excursions into the field. Even if you don't officially volunteer for a project, the materials here can help you become a better birder.
