Open Space Fall Bird Migration Field Trip | Moore

In partnership with Pitkin County Open Space & Trails

Pockets of fall migration bird activity are exciting to find in the open landscape of the Moore Open Space, where clusters of native shrubs in perimeter areas and stands of trees provide excellent foraging and cover. Join us for a morning field trip to explore this special area that is a hotspot for mixed flocks of migrating songbirds. 

This class requires advanced registration to ensure appropriate planning for the field experience. Participants must register by 5pm on the day prior to the outing.

Meeting location will be communicated in advance to registered participants.
