FOOT WEAR

Even though we'll walk very little, we'll cross a little stream and the Colorado can be slippery at certain points. 

Please wear strong shoes or boots in which you feel comfortable.

CLOTHES

Mornings in springtime can be cool, so do bring a sweater for your own comfort.

In June, please bring a hat and water, the Colorado can be very hot.



BINOCULARS

I will provide binoculars, but if you have your own, bring them with you. I can check their quality for you if you like.

YOUR GUIDE

For a long time Elske Koelstra (The Netherlands) has shared her enthusiasm for birds. An avid bird watcher, she learnt a lot through environmental clubs over the years. She knows how to recognize different birds and where to find them. With a touch of humor, she'll tell you many funny stories about nature, the Colorado and about birds in particular. She knows their songs and if needed she can even perfectly imitate them.

REVIEWS

This is a great experience. Thanks to Elske, we distinguished bird songs and than we observed the birds!

We've seen plenty different bird species, even a lesser spotted woodpecker!!

I recommend this event to everyone who loves nature!
