Backyard BioBlitz

May 16, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm MDT

Saturday, May 16th at 9 am, 1 pm and 4 pm

Join natural resource experts and Bird Conservancy of the Rockies’ staff as you investigate the biodiversity in your own backyard! This year, due to COVID-19, social distancing and safer-at-home orders it will look a little different, but it won’t stop us from enjoying nature from our own doorsteps. We will give you the tips & tools to identify the flora & fauna in your own backyard or nearby space!

Join us at 9 am via Zoom for a welcome and kick-off to the day, and learn how to use “iNaturalist”. Then you can check back in at 1 pm & 4 pm to ask us any questions that may have come up, share your findings and hear from the experts on our panel! This event is free but please register below.

Every year, our friends at Rocky Mountain Raptor Program in Fort Collins, CO receive over 300 injured, sick and orphaned birds. They are nursed back to health and more than 80% of them are released back into the wild. Last fall, bird banders at our Barr Lake State Park station enjoyed the opportunity to meet one of the recipients of their kindness in person!

A Record-Setting Year!

We had a banner year at our banding station at Wildcat Hills State Recreation Area in Scotts Bluff County, Nebraska. 2020 proved to be our busiest season there to date. We set new highs for total banded birds and added several new species that had never been banded there before. All of this was while simultaneously adapting to meet health and safety guidelines that enabled visitors to experience bird banding firsthand in a safe way.
