Colorado is known for its beautiful scenery and rich wildlife. Learn ways to experience everything our natural community has to offer. Have you been bit by the birdwatching bug? The Town has two free birdwatching classes that have everything you need to know. 


From bird identification, to binocular styles, to the best birding locations – The Town’s free birdwatching class series will make sure you’re fully prepared for the season.


Join us for the two-part series!
