We will cover the many different habitats on the farm including open fields, wetlands, riparian forest and willow thickets. Expect about one to two miles of hiking on fairly level terrain. The farm sits on a migration corridor and so can be especially "birdy" during spring and fall migration.
I've been leading guided birding hikes for ten years and have made Venetucci Farm my area of focus. The bird species list is now at 150 and growing. I have exclusive access to lead birding hikes at this historic farm which dates back to the late 1800's. I was the Education Coordinator at the farm for ten years and have enjoyed hosting thousands of guests. I now lead guided birding hikes for small groups over the farm's 200 acres, while taking time to appreciate the many other creatures that make the farm their home. I'm also happy to talk about the farm's history and future. I also lead additional guided birding hikes in a variety of locations in the Colorado Springs area.
Venetucci Farm is not open to the public so this is the only opportunity to explore the farm's wild corners and learn about its history.
Food, drink and transportation not included. In warm weather, long pants, long sleeved shirts and bug spray recommended. We are outside and walking the entire time but will tailor the hike's length.
