Spring brings many migratory birds back to the Aspen area, making May an exciting month for observing diverse species and nesting activities. This outing meets at Hallam Lake and includes birding in ACES’ 25-acre preserve as well as a mini-field trip to one of many nearby hotspots.
Birders of all experience levels are welcome! These outings are designed to enhance your knowledge of local birds and their habitats as well as honing your field craft skills, whether you are a beginning birder or a seasoned expert. Join us to discover the area’s most watchable wildlife: birds!
