A bird walk is a great opportunity to enjoy nature and potentially see some great birds! We're planning for beginner - intermediate 1.5 hour walks guided by our own Kyle Carlsen, team member at our Longmont, CO location. The walks will be free, but be sure to dress appropriately for the weather.  We initally plan to have 1 walk per month on a Sunday morning but will collect information from those interested in participating to develop a schedule to serve the most people.

If you have binoculars, be sure to bring them. However, we'll also have a few that are available for checkout. You'll learn how to customize your binoculars for the best views, as well as how to listen for, find, follow and identify the birds we might see.
