Morning Birding | one

Join ACES naturalist Rebecca Weiss on Tuesdays through the summer to discover the diverse birdlife of the Roaring Fork Valley!  Birders of all levels are welcome.  These morning outings typically begin with a short mini-lesson about a seasonally pertinent birding topic, followed by birding out in the field, usually at Hallam Lake and/or at nearby birding hotspots.  Bring your own binoculars and guidebook, or borrow the ones we have here at ACES.  Be prepared for cool temperatures and walking on and off-trail on these beautiful summer mornings. Come join us for this perfect way to start your day!

All birding classes meet at Hallam Lake EXCEPT June 14, July 19, August 16, and September 13 - those classes will take place at Rock Bottom Ranch.

Rebecca Weiss is a naturalist specializing in birding, botany, and interpretive program development. She first came to ACES as Naturalist in 1993, later coordinated the Naturalist Field School and worked with Naturalist Programs, and now helps with Naturalist training and mentoring, birding, and custom programs. Rebecca is also a professional writer, developing trail-side natural history interpretive signs and displays in the Roaring Fork Valley and elsewhere in the Colorado. She holds a BS in Biology and an MA in Environmental Education, and loves exploring the natural world with her husband, Austin, and their children Anders and Elsie.

WHAT TO BRING: Bring binoculars and bird field guide books. ACES has some binoculars to lend. Wear comfortable shoes for walking and appropriate layers for the temperatures. Bring snack and water if you need it for this short outing.

HOW TO GET THERE: Please bike or walk to ACES whenever possible! We understand that you'll need to drive to ACES for certain classes - 6am birding classes, photo field trips, etc. However, when you can, make it a personal challenge and see if you can drive fewer times than last year! Parking at ACES is limited.
