Birding By Canoe
May 18, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC+0
Parents and children ages 7 and up can join Bird Conservancy educators and Barr Lake State Park rangers for a day of learning basic canoeing and birding skills, which will culminate with a guided canoeing tour around the north end of the lake to see what birds can be observed while on the water!
Participants are encouraged to bring their own canoe, kayak, and binoculars to utilize during the program. Loaners of each can be reserved prior to the program on a first-come, first-serve basis. *Note: A parent/guardian must stay with child(ren). Limited space.
Pack a lunch to enjoy a picnic on the shore after the program!

We are therefore excited to launch the Recite Me toolbar on our website, which you can access on a desktop, laptop, and mobile device!
