Confluence Park, Delta, Colorado

About five minutes from my home is this wonderful park that is at the confluence of the Gunnison and Uncompahgre Rivers. Besides the rivers, the park has wetlands and a large pond. I decided today to set this park as a place on iNaturalist and start keeping track of the observations made here. For now I seem to be the only Coloradan making observations here but hope some of you out there will come join me and document the life of this park.

I expect lots and lots of unique observations made from here! At Arcadia Park, you found some amazing stuff from all of your return visits — it’ll be fun to watch what you see here too. :)
