Join naturalist and photographer Arden Anderson for birding in the Gunnison Valley. We will meet at 8 a.m. at the restroom parking area at the south end of the Lake City Bridge (Hwy 149 & Hwy 50 Junction on the eastern end of Blue Mesa Reservior) about 9 miles west of Gunnison. At this meeting point we will regroup to minimize cars and begin the day by driving east to Gunnison then south on the Gold Basin Road to look for sagebrush birds, including Gunnison Sage Grouse. Returning along the Gunnison River, we will stop at the McCabe Wetlands and Neversink riparian areas. Continuing west, we will check Blue Mesa Reservoir for ducks, grebes, and other water birds. Depending on our luck, we should be done about 12 or 1 pm. As usual, bring water, lunch, insect repellent, sunscreen, and appropriate clothes for changing weather. We hope you will join us. To ensure we all have an enjoyable experience, this trip is limited to 12 people. Please contact Arden to reserve a space by emailing Arden at his This email address is being protected from spambots.
