Description#

This site is not yet open to the public.
Kestrel Fields is a 73-acre link in a corridor connecting the foothills and the Cache la Poudre River. 

Watch for birds of open lands, including American kestrels and migrating sparrows, shrikes and bluebirds. Observe how this site changes as habitat restoration and conservation agriculture by Poudre Valley Community Farms increase diversity over time. A community fundraising effort provided extra resources for habitat restoration, thank you!
