Event Details

  • Leaders - Carolyn Beach 303-443-0129 and Diane Carter 303-427-3371
    Limit of leaders plus 10 people.
    Three days and two nights.
    Hotel is the Lewellen Lodge in Lewellen, NE. Rooms have small kitchenettes with sinks, microwaves, refrigerators and dishes. You'll need to bring your own food for breakfast and to pack a lunch on Thursday. There is one "restaurant" in town for dinner if you wish.
    Day one: Make your way to the Visitor's center at Lake McConaughey by 1:00pm. We will purchase park passes and spend several hours birding at Lake Ogallala (the lake below the McConaughey damn). Then go to our hotel in Lewellen for dinner and sleep.
    Day two: rise early to travel to Crescent Lakes National Wildlife Refuge where we will spend the day birding. This will be mostly a driving trip on winding dirt/sand roads. An all-wheel drive with high clearance is recommended. We will need to car pool on this trip. Possible species include Whimbrel, Upland Sandpiper, raptors, Trumpeter Swan, close-up looks at Burrowing Owls, curlews and more.
    Day three: Rise early again and head back to Lake Ogallala to do some more birding there. Almost certainly will see Orchard Orioles, Marsh Wrens, Cardinals, Bell’s Vireo and more. Leave for Boulder around noon or so.
    It is 3 1/2 hours to Lake Ogallala and another hour north to our hotel. We should be back in Boulder by late afternoon on Friday.
    Questions: Call Carolyn or Diane at the phone numbers above. To sign up, email Diane at deecar7@gmail.com. She will also help arrange carpooling to Nebraska if you let her know you need a ride or are willing to drive.
