Birds & Brews with Jessica Miller – Rock Ledge Ranch

May 14 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Sunday, May 14
Rock Ledge Ranch (9am) followed by Red Leg Brewing Company (12pm)
– Rock Ledge Ranch offers a lovely mix of riparian woods, foothills pine and oak, and open fields. We will venture northwest into Garden of the Gods park to look for prairie falcons and white-throated swifts. Expect a nice variety of migrants and summer residents throughout! Afterwards we’ll head a few minutes up the road to Red Leg Brewing.
– Difficulty: Easy/Moderate. We will be on relatively even terrain and will walk no more than 3 miles. Depending on weather conditions leading upto the trip, trails could be snowy or muddy.
– Bring binoculars and dress for the Colorado Springs forecast. Don’t have binoculars? Let Jessica know you would like to borrow a pair.
– Restrooms available at the beginning, midway, and end of the hike.
– Meet at the kiosk on the east side of Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site by the dog park, 38.873553, -104.871207. Depending on construction, entering this area from the main entrance from Gateway Rd. may be more convenient. 
Please RSVP to Jessica Miller if you plan to attend. Jessica Miller <[email protected]>


You will be asked to sign a waiver prior to the walk.

Aiken Audubon offers field trips to interested persons as a means to enjoy birds and nature. All participants do so in the spirit of enjoying the outing.

As a participant, I will:

  1. Stay with the group.
  2. Notify the leader (or the driver of the vehicle in which I am riding) of any plans to leave the group.
  3. Make sure the person who sat next to me in the car is there when we leave the area.
  4. Not undertake any endeavor that will endanger my health as I know it.
  5. Observe all applicable rules of conduct, policy, regulation and law, whether on public or private lands.
  6. Adhere to the ABA Birder’s Code of Ethics.

The volunteer leaders will try to take reasonable precautions to provide for the safety of the participants. In the event of an accident, any emergency care is the financial responsibility of the participant.

I understand that I am primarily responsible for my own well-being, and hold harmless Aiken Audubon Society and its volunteers from any claim that may arise, including any contraction of illness, such as COVID-19.
