The Pagosa Ranger District of the San Juan National Forest provides free, entertaining, interpretive and informational programs for the public at various times and locations during the summer. We are excited to kick off this season’s schedule. If you would like to participate in one of our informing and entertaining interpretive walks, stop by our office at 180 Pagosa Street to pick up a schedule, or give us a call.
We are pleased to announce our first birding walk of the season. Join Becky Gillette of Audubon Colorado for a leisurely walk along the West Fork of the San Juan River. Birds are courting, nesting and raising their young, and there are many interesting colors, sounds and behaviors to observe. The walk will take place on Wednesday, June 6, from 8:30 until 11 a.m. Bring your binoculars and field guides if you have them (or borrow some from us). To participate in the walk, head east from Pagosa Springs on U.S. 160 toward Wolf Creek for about 13.5 miles. At the West Fork Road (Forest Road #648), turn left and go for about half a mile until you cross the bridge. Park on the left or right immediately after the bridge. Prepare for a fun and educational birding experience!
