Eagle Watch

 Friday, December 15, 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.

Beverly F - Master Naturalist Assistant

I am a business owner, photographer, seasonal National Park Service Ranger and Mom who loves the outdoors. My family & I usually hike & bike more than 200 miles each summer. I look forward to exploring the Fort Collins Natural Areas with you and your family! So, let's get out there, learn something new & enjoy all that our natural areas have to teach us! As Walt Whitman said, " Keep your face always toward the sunshine - and shadows will fall behind you."

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.
