March 19, 2021 – The Annual Pikes Peak Birding and Nature Festival promises to be a special event! The festival, held Friday May 14 to Sunday May 16 will offer opportunities for birding, workshops, and other outdoor explorations while operating in compliance with current Covid-19 restrictions and guidelines.
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.
We hope you will join us in Colorado Springs, Colorado on May 14-16, 2021 for dynamic field trips and appealing seminars and workshops.
Registration opens March 27th at 10:00 a.m.
