Eagle Watch

 12/29/2017  |  03:00 PM - 04:30 PM
  Fossil Creek Reservoir Natural Area

Natural Discoveries - Mixed Ages

Bald eagles from the north make Fort Collins their winter home. They spend nights in communal roosts in cottonwood trees near the reservoir. Volunteer Master Naturalists are stationed at the viewing pier and explain the eagles’ natural history and help visitors view them through spotting scopes and binoculars. Eagle Watch Programs require a short walk along a paved trail to a viewing pier. Please note that the viewing pier is open year round but Cattail Flats Trail is closed in the winter to prevent disturbance to these birds. Drop in any time during these programs. They are free and no registration is required, but if you sign up here you'll receive email reminders and notices of cancellations. If temperatures are below freezing, or it’s windy or foggy, the Eagle Watches may be canceled. Be sure to visit www.fcgov.com/naturalareas for weather cancellations and updates before you go.

Brooke C - Master Naturalist Assistant

I graduated from Fort Collins High School in May. I am starting at Front Range Community College in August then hoping to transfer to Colorado State University to get my Masters Degree in Wildlife Biology. I want to be a Wildlife Biologist. I am trying to get as much experience as I can and learn as much as I can about natural resources. I think teachings kids about natural resources is fun, and I love working with kids and helping them learn.


Mark T - Master Naturalist

I moved to Fort Collins in 1999, and retired in 2016 after 31 years as a wildlife ecologist with the USDA National Wildlife Research Center. I enjoy golfing, skiing, hiking and watching wildlife, especially birds.
