Join us on Saturday, September 14th for FRBC-Boulder’s 2nd Saturday bird walk at Lagerman Agricultural Preserve.
Lagerman Agricultural Preserve in Longmont encompasses over 2,000 acres of agricultural lands as part of Boulder County’s Open Space. The western end of the reservoir itself is a shorebird paradise and is closed for nesting between April 1st and August 31st. The surrounding grasslands and marsh are home to birds such as Osprey, Burrowing Owls, and sparrows. The easy walk around the reservoir is 1.6 miles with an additional hiking trail through the grassland of about 5 miles.
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.
