Bird Conservancy of the Rockies is a non-profit based in Brighton, Colorado, that focuses on conserving birds and their habitats through science, education, and land stewardship. We are currently looking for new volunteers to join our Education Volunteers Team to teach others about birds and our local ecosystem.

Our educational opportunities are very diverse, including in-class and field trip programs for school groups, festivals and events, bird banding activities and demonstrations, and bird-themed hikes for community groups.

Opportunities are year-round, while school group in-class and field trips are during the school year.

We are looking for new volunteers who are passionate about nature and sharing it with others!

Experience working with students is preferred, though training is provided for all lessons and activities.

Mission Statement

Bird Conservancy of the Rockies conserves birds and their habitats through an integrated approach of science, education and land stewardship. Our work radiates from the Rockies to the Great Plains, Mexico and beyond. Our mission is advanced through sound science, achieved through empowering people, realized through stewardship and sustained through partnerships. Together, we are improving native bird populations, the land and the lives of people.

Description

To accomplish our mission, we combine science, education and stewardship in a full-circle approach that involves:

Researching bird ecology and population response to anthropogenic and natural processes to evaluate and adjust management and conservation strategies using the best available science;

Monitoring long-term bird population trends to provide a scientific foundation for conservation action;

Educating people of all ages through active, experiential programs that create an awareness of and appreciation for birds;

Partnering with state and federal natural resource agencies, private citizens, schools, universities, and other non-governmental organizations to build synergy and consensus for bird conservation;

Fostering good stewardship on private and public lands through voluntary, cooperative partnerships that create win-win situations for wildlife and people;

Sharing the latest information on bird populations, land management and conservation practices to create informed publics;

Delivering bird conservation at biologically relevant scales by working across political and jurisdictional boundaries in western North America.
