Prospect Lake Tuesday Waterbird Walks: October 27 – December 8, 9:30 a.m.

Despite its urban location, Prospect Lake in Colorado Springs’ Memorial Park is a well-known waterbird magnet during migration and in winter when open water remains available. With this in mind, Aiken Audubon will be offering weekly birding walks around the lake on Tuesday mornings from October 27 through December 8. We’ll watch for ducks, geese, grebes, gulls and more – as well as the occasional raptor attracted by these birds. Walking distance around the lake is approximately 1.25 miles. We will start from the parking lot on the lake’s southeast side, just west of the intersection of South Union Boulevard and Prospect Lake Drive.

Kip Miller will lead these outings. Face masks and social distancing will be required. Join us for one, a few, or all outings! Group size will be limited to 8 participants per week. To reserve a space, please contact Kip at [email protected]
