Florissant Fossil Bed with Debbie Barnes

July 3, 2023 @ 6:30 am - 10:00 am


Join Aiken and Debbie Barnes on a bird walk at Florissant Fossil Beds on July 3rd from 6:30am- 10am. Meet at the Barksdale Picnic area off Twin Rocks Rd, just south of the visitor center. It is a left turn only, the picnic area is then on the left. There is a standard entrance fee ($10 per person) to visit the fossil beds, with parking for only 5 cars.  Debbie will already be up near there camping that weekend.  Other registrants are encouraged to carpool from Red Rock Canyon Loop Trailhead off of 31st street (behind Rudy’s).  The drive is 45 minutes, so meet at the trailhead at 5:30am, with departure at 5:40am.
