Trail Difficulty: Moderate
Maximum Participants: 10
Directions: To carpool, meet at the King Soopers parking lot at 100 Founders Parkway (just east of I-25) in Castle Rock,
CO. One-day birding pass for Chico Basin Ranch is $15 or $10/individual when with a DFO group.
This is a fee area. We need volunteers with high clearance vehicles to drive on ranch roads. Let leader know
if you can drive. Chico Basin Ranch is a working cattle ranch located in El Paso/Pueblo counties, southeast of
Colorado Springs. The driving distance from Castle Rock will be approximately 100 miles, a little over two
hours. The ranch will be birded by following the ranch roads in vehicles with stops to bird on level open areas
such as ponds, wetlands, and grasslands. This will be an all-day trip so please bring water and lunch. Scopes
will be handy but not necessary. A two-way radio per car would be helpful. We will bird until 4 pm and should
be back at Castle Rock around 6 p.m. Register online or contact leader.
