Please call before attending any community events. It is likely that they will be postponed or canceled as a result of the coronavirus. You can find CDC coronavirus information at cdc.gov/coronavirus; AARP has additional resources at aarp.org/coronavirus.

Our local NWR hosts many waterfowl and other migrants.  Plus, April is a good time to look for rarities!  We will meet at 8 a.m. at the viewing platform.  

If coming from Laramie, head south on 3rd Street/ US-287, turn right onto County Road 22 (as if entering the cement plant), then turn left onto Sand Creek Road (parallel to railroad tracks - many people have missed this turn and mistakenly entered the cement plant parking lot). Stay on Sand Creek Road for about 8 miles, then turn right at the National Wildlife Refuge sign.  To reach the viewing platform, continue west from the sign for approximately 0.75 miles, and then turn left (south) and follow the two track until it ends (approximately 0.4 miles.

Please wear a mask and be mindful of social distancing.  In addition, bring your binoculars (if you have them), an extra layer (perhaps two), sun protection, and water/snacks if you would like them.  Most trips will last for two to three hours, but attendees are free to leave at any time.  

Please pre-register by emailing us laramie.audubon@gmail.com so that we can anticipate the group size and plan social distancing measures accordingly.
