Field Trip to Rio Mora National Wildlife Refuge

Time to get outside and enjoy nature!

This field trip on Saturday, May 19th will focus on breeding & late-migrant birds at Rio Mora National Wildlife Refuge—a restricted access NWR site managed in conjunction with the Denver Zoo Foundation. We will be exploring breeding birds in Riparian, Grassland, Ponderosa forest and Pinõn-Juniper woodland ecosystems – more than 60 species are possible. A discussion about the resident Bison herd (and hopefully some viewing) will also take place. This will be a largely a hiking field trip, with about 3 miles covered on relatively well maintained game-trails. This field trip will last until about 2:00pm, so bring a lunch. Please also bring water, sunscreen and a hat. Meet at Exit 364 for Watrous/Golondrinas, NM on I-25 at 7:00 AM.  When emailing, put Rio Mora in the subject line.
