Exploring the Ecology of Cherry Creek — Fall Equinox Walk

Saturday, September 17 from 10am-12pm

Join the Cherry Creek Stewardship Partners to explore the terrific new features at the Cherry Creek Valley Ecological Park such as the enhanced riparian and wetlands habitat. The Partners will lead a fall equinox tour as part of the quarterly census of wildlife activity at the park. Learn about nature and science at this unique open space park in Arapahoe County. Among the birds we may see are Say’s phoebe, red-tailed hawk, great horned owl, house wren, and song sparrow.


Explore Evergreen – Birds, Elk, & Beer

Saturday, September 17 from 9am-12pm

We’ll bird Buchanan Park, which has a nice walking trail with nuthatches, bluebirds, hummingbirds, swallows, sparrows, finches, woodpeckers, and chickadees, and briefly tour Evergreen’s Community Garden before proceeding to Evergreen Lake, where we should see bugling elk and migrant birds. Most observation will be on foot, involving some mild to moderate hiking. OPTIONAL: Lunch and craft beers on the patio of the new Lariat Lodge Brewing Company, Evergreen’s newest restaurant, located near Main Street. The LLBC is surrounded by forest which should allow for continued birding. Register Online.
