Birding for All Celebration!
October 21, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm MDT
Celebrate connecting people of all abilities and disabilities to birds and the natural world! It will be a morning of birding, banding, journaling and engaging. We will be leading bird tours, visits to our bird banding station, helping you to create your very own nature journal, and teaching people how to engage with nature in ways that are most comfortable for them.
All activities will be stationed outside of the Nature Center at Barr Lake State Park (13401 Picadilly Rd, Brighton, CO 80603). Tours and banding station visits will include crossing a moderately inclined foot bridge and traveling as far as participants are comfortable but no more than a half mile on a hard packed, gravel trail. Benches are available along the way to take a break if needed. We will have binoculars and adaptive equipment available to use. The adaptive equipment helps people with seen and unseen challenges be able to see birds on an iPad rather than have to look through a scope or binoculars.
We will remain flexible throughout the morning and all activities will be available throughout the morning. We will also have Barr Lake State Park’s two track chairs and an ADA shuttle available to assist any visitors experiencing mobility challenges. Accessible bathrooms are available in the Nature Center.
Registration is not required for this amazing opportunity! Grab some friends and join us for an amazing morning out in nature!
