Silverthorne to host third annual Osprey Walk

Summit Daily staff report

The Silverthorne Parks, Open Space, Recreation and Trails Committee will host its third annual Osprey Walk on Aug. 1, at 5:30 p.m. at North Pond Park.

The event will begin with a slideshow of local wildlife and birds, and a spotting scope will be set up to view an active osprey nest near Colorado Highway 9 and Golden Eagle Road. There will also be a treasure hunt with prizes.

Representatives of Colorado Parks and Wildlife will be on hand to answer questions and offer guests an up-close view of the osprey nest through their scope.

Ashley Nettles, a wildlife biologist with the U.S. Forest Service, will be hosting a discussion titled “Furry Friends of the National Forest.”

Starting at 6:30 p.m., there will be a raptor display and discussion by Wild Wings, a Front Range nonprofit whose goal is to foster a greater public awareness of the important roles that Colorado’s native birds and bats play in the environment.

Start a dialogue, stay on topic and be civil.
