Over 100 species of birds have been spotted in this area, a “zone between the plains and mountains where dramatic red spires and outcrops collide with rich green flora.” So bring your binocs and your camera and get out to the Nature Conservancy’s Aiken Canyon Preserve on the first Saturday of the New Year.Since this is a gentle 5-miler, we’ll take lots of time to pause, view and photograph whatever seems interesting. Bring traction and poles to navigate any icy spots. Leader will update on conditions a few days prior. No dogs are allowed in Aiken Canyon. More info on Aiken Canyon at:


Let’s meet at 7:30 a.m. the South Nevada Safeway and (optional) carpool to the trailhead, about 20 minutes south on Highway 115 towards Canon City. Afterwards, anyone who wants to continue socializing can meet for lunch or beverages at a spot TBD somewhere near Safeway.
