The Annual Pikes Peak Birding and Nature Festival, set for Friday, May 14, to Sunday, May 16, will offer opportunities for birding, workshops and other outdoor explorations.

Join public, private and non-profits for an ecotourism birding and nature festival that promotes conservation and education to explore the natural and agricultural heritage resources of the Pikes Peak Region. Spring migration along Colorado’s Front Range is often full of surprises. The Pikes Peak region has much to offer, with the shortgrass prairie rising to meet the forested foothills and deep canyons of the southern Front Range, and rich, riparian forests providing for countless birds, insects and other wildlife.

This year’s offerings include a Paleontology Hike at Corral Bluffs, Hike & Bird Banding at Chico Basin Ranch, Ethnobotany & Wildflowers Walk at Paint Mines Interpretive Park, and much more. This festival offers something for everyone!

On Saturday evening, a “Birds and Brews” happy hour at Bear Creek Regional Park will include free sandwiches, drinks and live jazz music. There will be door prizes and items up for bid at the auction table including this year’s festival art.

Join the fun May 14-16 for dynamic field trips and appealing seminars and workshops. Registration opens March 27 at 10 a.m.

The early bird gets the worm — or in this case, discounted festival cost and registration for preferred workshops and trips!
