May 8, 2012 5:30 – 7:30 pm Meeting Place: Aspen Glen, Glenwood Springs, Colorado Non-members: $5 / Members: FREE Join Jonathan Lowsky, wildlife biologist with Colorado Wildlife Science LLC, and staff from Roaring Fork Conservancy for this amazing look at great blue herons, bald eagles, and osprey near the confluence of Cattle Creek and the Roaring Fork River. This area is nest heaven for these birds: over 20 nesting pairs of herons, one pair of bald eagles, and in 2005, the first recorded pair of ospreys fledged an offspring near this site. We’ll tour two properties, off-limits to the public, in search of these large avian predators. Please bring binoculars and/a spotting scope. We will bring a few pairs for participants to use. Please dress appropriately; the viewing will happen rain or shine. This event is underwritten by ECOS Communications. Registration is required at www.roaringfork.org/events Please call (970) 927-1290 with questions. Roaring Fork Conservancy is the watershed conservation organization in the Roaring Fork Valley that brings people together to protect our rivers.
