Aiken Canyon with Collin Hildreth – Sunday – March 24, 2024 at 8a

March 24 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join Aiken and Collin Hildreth at Aiken Canyon for an approximately 3-4 hour walk on Sunday, March 24th.  Meet in the parking lot, map below.

Named after ornithologist, Dr. Charles Aiken, this is a great destination for birders. Over 100 species have been seen here. Located 16 miles south of Colorado Springs, these 1,621-acres are where Aiken raised his herd of sheep. Aiken Canyon is one of the last high-quality examples of the southern Front Range foothills ecosystem. The preserve is composed of a mosaic of habitat types, including shrub lands, tall grass prairie meadows, pinyon juniper woodlands and mixed coniferous woodlands. Make sure you bring sturdy boots for hiking and plenty of water.

  • Appropriate for all levels of birders.
  • Physical difficulty: Moderate/difficult.
  • Meet at Aiken Canyon (map) at 8 am.
  • Dress for Colorado weather.

If you would like to borrow a pair of binoculars, please email [email protected] as soon as possible so that we can have a loaner pair for you on the day of the hike.
