Ensuring Accessibility for All
Diversity, inclusion, equity, and accessibility are essential to our work at Bird Conservancy of the Rockies. We strive to promote these principles at every level of our organization, including in our most public-facing communication tool—our website. We are therefore excited to launch the Recite Me toolbar which adds a range of accessibility features at the easy click of a button. Hit the “Accessibility Tools” button at the top right of the screen to give it a try!Explore & Learn More
Beavers, Our Secret Superheroes
A chewed tree stump, an interwoven dam of sticks, logs, and mud, or a what might look like a pile of mud with branches and grasses are all signs you are in beaver territory. And this territory is on its way to becoming a thriving part of our ecosystem!Read More
Playa lakes are temporary wetlands that dot the prairies of the western Great Plains, especially during the spring. These shallow depressions are lined with clay soil that holds rain water. Healthy playas are a win-win-win for water conservation, people and birds. They help replenish our aquifers, filter water and aid in flood control. They also provide wildlife habitat and important stopover points for migrating birds. Over the years, many playas across our western grasslands have become degraded and are disappearing from the landscape. However, with proper restoration and management, playas can return to their full potential.Read More
X Marks the Spot!
With over 70% of landownership in the Great Plains and Intermountain West being privately owned, landowners are one of the keys to conservation of wildlife habitat. Many at-risk bird species use private lands during their annual life-cycle. Our Private Lands Wildlife biologists work assist landowners in navigating the complex process for securing funding for management plans, habitat enhancements, and infrastructure improvements on working lands through USDA Farm Bill. By targeting the specific needs of local stakeholders and geographic areas, we not only make funding more accessible, but we use the resources more efficiently to ensure conservation is happening where it’s needed most.Read More
