Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

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.
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.
