Upcoming  Field Trips

The mission of the FCAS is to promote the appreciation, conservation, and restoration of ecosystems. Foremost, in that mission is education. The educational events that we participate in throughout the year cannot take place without the time and expertise of the chapter members. The events for this Fall include:


Saturday, Jan. 11, Running Deer Natural Area.

Leader: Robert Beauchamp, [email protected] 970-232-9296.

We will explore a few marshes and ponds during this 1.5–2-mile saunter through the natural area. All levels are welcome and a spotting scope will be available. Meet at 8 a.m. in the parking lot.


Sunday, Jan. 12, Bobcat Ridge Natural Area Bird Survey.
