Raptor Field Trips

Every year we do raptor field trips - two days each in the North Fork Valley and Uncompahgre Valley.  Trips will go until 2:00 or 3:00 each day and are limited to 12 participants each day.  Please sign up in advance to reserve your place.  Usually there is a waiting list, so if you sign up and then are unable to attend, let the trip leader know in advance so your place can be filled by an appreciative next person on the list.  Bring a lunch, warm clothes, and binoculars.  Carpools will be arranged at the meeting places to reduce the numbers of cars in the caravan.

North Fork/Hotchkiss Area:  Saturday February 9 and Sunday February 10, 9:00 a.m.:   Meet at the Hotchkiss City Market parking lot at 9:00 a.m. each day.  Trips will be co-led by Jim LeFevre and Adam Petry.  Contact Jim LeFevre at his This email address is being protected from spambots.
