Yampa Preserve

0

Another Nature Conservancy owned property, this one has more open access than the Carpenter Ranch and also has some of the same avian highlights. Well-marked trails pass through woodlands of narrowleaf cottonwood, box elder, and red-osier dogwood; keep an eye out for Belted Kingfisher, Great Horned Owl, Gray Catbird, Bullock’s Oriole, Yellow Warbler, and American and Lesser Goldfinches. Veery also breeds here, though it can be hard to find.
