Bird Conservancy of the Rockies offers educational programs for homeschool families on birds and other nature-themed topics in the fall, winter and spring. Most programs are held in Brighton, Colorado, at the Bird Conservancy’s Environmental Learning Center or elsewhere at Barr Lake State Park, although sometimes we venture into the mountains for snowshoeing or other activities.
Homeschool programs are designed for multiple ages and ability levels and vary by program. We encourage older participants to be positive role models and mentors to younger homeschool students throughout all of the activities. Parental supervision is required at all homeschool programs.
Upcoming Homeschool Programs
Science of Climbing with Colorado Mountain Club – Thursday, April 20, 2017 from 1-3 p.m. Ages 4 and up. This program will be focused on the adaptations that allow many local mammals and birds to climb, whether it’s up the sides of mountains or up a tree in your backyard! CMC will be bringing their Bouldering Bus so that humans can practice climbing, too. Students will split their time between climbing in Bouldering Bus and learning about climbing wildlife.
Annual Bald Eagle Hike – Wednesday, May 3, 2017 from 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Ages 4 and up. Join us for our final homeschool program of the Spring. We’ll learn all about Bald Eagles and observe Barr Lake’s nesting pair!
ONLINE REGISTRATION REQUIRED FOR ALL PROGRAMS. We do not accept walk-ins to homeschool programs.
Registration for Homeschool Programs will open one month before each program and will close 3 days prior to the scheduled program date.
