Sandstone Ranch Community Park - Weld County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: This new City of Longmont park has distinct potential for migrant and breeding landbirds. So far, it has received little coverage, but mid-summer Great Crested Flycatcher and American Redstart have been detected here. Rock Wrens may breed along the scenic sandstone cliffs, and the small ponds do attract a reasonable variety of "regular" herons, including Great and Snowy Egrets. The city has connected this park to the trail system along the St. Vrain (which remains in some disrepair -- as of November 2013 -- after the floods of September 2013), allowing access to nearby ponds. Regular breeders include Brown Thrasher and Northern Mockingbird.

Habitat: Lowland Riparian, Stream, Cliff Face, Hedgerow/Shelterbelt
Elevation:
Directions: From I-25 and CO 119 east of Longmont, head west on CO 119 to the park entrance, on the south about three miles west of the interstate.
