Raptor ID Class


“Just a quick note to tell you how much I enjoyed the class over the weekend! It was my first time out and was so impressed by the facility and the raptors. Your knowledge is mind boggling and the education I received was amazing!!! My new ability to make an educated guess is already driving my family crazy. I look forward to attending more events and spending more time learning about the raptors and all that your organization does.”

After a three-year hiatus due to Covid, we’re pleased to present a raptor identification class that you’re not going to want to miss! Colorado Parks & Wildlife (CPW) Senior Raptor Volunteer Raptor Monitor Karen Metz and Anne are teaming up once again in a brand-new class that will feature winter migrants in Colorado. The class will be held at the Barr Lake State Park Nature Center on Saturday, November 12th from 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM. Karen’s outstanding slides will be accompanied by nine of our raptors for up-close viewing, comparisons and photos. Coffee, tea and other morning refreshments will be provided.
Early Bird Pricing Valid Until October 9, 2022
09-24-22: Thirty Spaces Left.
The class fee is $50 for current REF members, and $60 for the general public. Please note that the class will be limited to 40 participants, so don’t wait to register. Price includes entry to the park.  Prices valid until October 9th, then the fee will be $60 and $70 respectively. Doing our bit to fight inflation, our Early Bird prices are the same as three years ago. If you do not wish to use PayPal, you may call our office at 303-680-8500.
We will send every participant a ticket/park entry about one week before the class date.  Please keep your payment receipt as well.  Either document will serve as your class and park entry.  Thank you.
