Silverthorne to host third annual Osprey Walk
July 25, 2017
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.
