GIS is an acronym that stands for Geographic Information Science, or Geographic Information System. This powerful technology enables Bird Conservancy Biologists to answer research questions, design scientific surveys, and measure the impacts of conservation projects on bird populations at a landscape scale.
The past year of pandemic life has been a struggle for most us in many ways.

Diversity, inclusion, equity, and accessibility are essential to our work at Bird Conservancy of the Rockies. We are working 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 on our website, which you can access on a desktop, laptop, and mobile device!
