Join us on Saturday, August 10th for FRBC-Boulder’s 2nd Saturday bird walk at Betasso Preserve.
Betasso Preserve spreads out over 1,100 acres of foothills habitat and is named for a family of homesteaders who ranched the land from the early 1900’s to 1976 when it became the first major open space property in Boulder County. Its scenic views make for an enjoyable hike, which is moderately difficult. Some notable species that may be seen at Betasso include Red Crossbills, Lark Sparrows, and migrating hummingbirds.
We will meet at the FRBC-Boulder store (5360 Arapahoe Ave., Ste. E Boulder, CO 80303) at 7:30am for our Birder’s Breakfast (featuring Birds & Beans “bird-friendly” certified coffee) and then carpool to Betasso Preserve. We will return by 12pm.
Please call the store (303.979.2475) to sign up. Limit is 15 participants. Preference will fall to those meeting at the store but any open spots can go to folks wishing to meet at the site.
Be sure to dress in layers for the weather and bring binoculars, water, snacks or lunch, hat, bug spray, and sunscreen.
