Black Canyon Audubon Field Trip

Add to plan Remove from plan



All Day

April 25, 2016: Waunita Lek.

Black Canyon Audubon has reserved the trailer that is set up for viewing the Gunnison sage grouse lek, east of Gunnison, CO. The trailer will hold 15 people comfortably. It is strongly recommended that participants spend the night before in Gunnison because the lek-viewing protocol stipulates that viewers must arrive at least 1 hour before sunrise. Sunrise on April 25th will be at 6:18 a.m. Lek-viewing protocol is strictly enforced to prevent disturbing the grouse. The Water Wheel Inn, just west of Gunnison has catered to Audubon members in the past. Call 970-641-1650 to make a reservation – tell them you are with Audubon. Bring scopes and binoculars. (Waunita lek)Participants are limited to 15. Cost $10/person. Lek-viewing information will be emailed to all participants. Sign up by emailing Elaine Probasco at eprobasco6 @earthlink.net.
