Bird Banding Field Trip Leaders - Training 21 August!

Save to Favorites

Bird Conservancy of the Rockies

Join us for a training on Wednesday, August 21, 8a - 2p, at Barr Lake State Park (13401 Picadilly Rd, Brighton, CO 80603) to learn more about being a Bird Banding Field Trip Volunteer Leader! RSVP is required.


Share your passion for nature and science as an Education Volunteer with Bird Conservancy of the Rockies at our Barr Lake Banding Station this fall! Migrating songbirds are caught harmlessly in mist nets to help scientists gather data about migration and bird behavior, while Volunteer Leaders help interpret and share it with students!

Bird Banding Field Trip Volunteer Leaders lead groups of no more than 15 students (grades PreK - 12) through the banding station, a hike, and bird-themed activities. Field Trips go from August 25 - October 15, and start at 9a - 12p.

No teaching experience is necessary, just a willingness to learn! We ask our volunteers to shadow a few programs before teaching on their own -- feel free to come and try it out!

If you have any questions, please contact Kelsey Mazur at kelsey.mazur@birdconservancy.org or 303-659-4348 x10.

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.
