Together, we are improving native bird populations, the land, and the lives of people. We monitor and identify population trends, research habitat needs, engage landowners and managers in wildlife and habitat stewardship, and educate diverse audiences.

The organization was founded in 1988, and educational programs built around its banding stations and Bald Eagle Watch were part of operations from the start. Since then, Bird Conservancy’s educational agenda has grown to also include K-12 School Field Trips and In-Class Programs, Home School Programs, Adult Education Programs, Family and Community Programs, a Volunteer Naturalist Program, a variety of Citizen Science projects, and Day and Overnight Summer Camps. Bird Conservancy engages approximately 35,000 people each year across a broad geographic spectrum, with around150 of these individuals participating in our Summer Nature Camps, which are based out of the organization’s headquarters and Environmental Learning Center at the north end of Barr Lake State Park in Brighton, CO.

Camp sessions are designed as part of a progression to introduce children to the outdoors at a young age and build their skills over time, taking our youngest participants from basic, sensorial interactions with nature to a more sophisticated appreciation and understanding of their place in the natural world. Camps range from two-hour experiences with 2 to 5 year-olds and their parents to ten-day overnight camps for 15 to 17 year-olds, the latter of which has participants learning about, conducting, and presenting scientific research projects and exploring careers in natural resources.
