June 23rd:  Kelly Canyon

Leader:  Ron Farmer  586-3987         (driving and walking along gravel roads)

This trip passes through open fields, then climbs past dry juniper covered hillsides, mature wetlands, mixed woodlands, and eventually reaches into the conifer forest.  Bluebirds, towhees, kingbirds, hummingbirds, warblers, grosbeaks and tanagers are just a few of the species that we should see along this route.  Four car limit.

Participants in all trips will meet at the front parking lot of the Museum of the Rockies at 6:45 a.m. and depart at 7:00 a.m. unless otherwise noted.  Car pools will be arranged at the museum; an offer to help with gas to the person driving is always appreciated but not mandatory.  Dress for the weather; good footwear is a must as field trip conditions are not always dry.  Turn off your cell phones and keep unnecessary conversations to a minimum.  Some field trips are limited to a certain number of participants.  Contact the trip leader for more details about any trip, and to sign up for the trip.  We encourage beginning birders to participate.  Come have a good time and learn something new.

** This summer, check the Sacajawea Audubon website for leader's choice field trips in late July and August. **
