Tomorrow is our last weekend day of the season; registration is required for all weekend visitors; see the Denver Audubon website to sign up. Please remember we will be closed on Monday, Memorial Day. We will then be open Tuesday through Friday of next week. We have organized groups coming our early Tuesday-Thursday but no school groups later in the morning. We are opening nets at 6:30, and most days have birds back at the station by 7:15. We aim to close by noon most days, earlier if it is very hot, very cold, or very windy. Come visit!
