Bird Watch

The Yampa Valley’s bird watching delights novice and veteran birders alike. The season starts in May with the International Migratory Bird Day at the Carpenter Ranch, followed by the return of the sandhill cranes in June and the rise of raptors come fall. Go on a weekly bird walk with Yampatika or do it yourself with the Yampa Valley Birding Club’s trail map of the best places to bird watch in Routt County.

Storytime for Grownups

Story is why the library exists and storytime isn’t just for kids. Spend an hour in Library Hall at the Bud Werner Memorial Library listening to contemporary and classic short stories read aloud by some of the Yampa Valley’s finest voices portraying suspense and humor, big characters and intriguing twists of plot. Check Datebook (VG34-VG42) for Storytime dates and times.
