Fall 2019 Bird Hikes & Events
The Fort Collins Audubon Society is an amazing local resource of bird and nature lovers that have a monthly calendar of bird hikes and other events. We would invite anyone interested in getting out into nature and learning more about the birds that are in the area, to join the FCAS on these hikes and support them as members.
