HawkWatch – Citizen Science Training
February 19, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm UTC+0
Take your raptor watching to the next level as a participant in Bird Conservancy’s HawkWatch program!
Volunteers collect information about raptor migration, which is stored in an online database and contributes to the understanding of raptor movements across North America. Official counts start in March with volunteers stationed at Dinosaur Ridge in Morrison, CO.
This training includes a classroom session and field outing.
The classroom session will be the evening of Feb. 19 at the Dinosaur Ridge Discovery Center (17681 W Alameda Pkwy, Golden, CO), followed by a field trip on February 23, meeting at the Stegosaurus Lot at 8AM.
RSVP is required.

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. For a field biologist who truly values time outdoors and in nature, the transition to telework and isolation is particularly impactful.

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!
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 a beaver territory. And this territory is on its way to becoming a thriving part of our ecosystem!
