Learn about Bald Eagles, Great Blue Herons and Cormorants, just to name a few, all which live at the park. You’ll get to touch a heron nest and hopefully see the bald eagles/eaglets from a spotting scope. Go on a 1-mile hike and see how some of these birds hunt for food and watch their daily behavior. Dress appropriately. You may want to bring sunscreen and water. You must register for this class through the City of Westminster’s Activity Registration Webpage:
Class is free! All ages. Limited to 20 spaces.

Standley Lake Regional Park
Standley Lake Regional Park is a 3,000- acre park located in unincorporated Jefferson County. The main entrance is located at 100th Avenue and Simms Street. The water rights for Standley Lake Reservoir are owned by FRICO (Farmers Reservoir and Irrigation Company) and the surface recreation rights have been leased to the City of Westminster for use as a recreation area since 1970. There is an Intergovernment Agreement (IGA), which governs the water use and is managed by the Standley Lake Operations Committee (SLOC).
