If you're interested in becoming a Volunteer Educator with our educational programs, we'll be having a training on Saturday, January 25th from 9a - 12p at our headquarters in Brighton, CO. RSVP is required (contact Kelsey Mazur at kelsey.mazur@birdconservancy.org or 303-659-4348 x10).

Become a highly trained volunteer educator who inspires students and the community to conserve birds and their habitats through leading interactive in-class programs, field trips, and educational outreach events. Volunteer Educators are essential to the Bird Conservancy’s efforts to instill a conservation ethic in people of all ages through interactive learning experiences using birds as the "hook."

No teaching experience necessary, but a willingness to learn is key! We will provide ongoing training to help you enhance your knowledge of the natural world.

Join us to share your passion for birds and join a community that cares about the environment and inspires others to appreciate it.

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.
