Restoration on Private Lands – Implementation, Biological Control Options, and Restoring for Birds

Join us on September 22nd from 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM MDT for part two of this webinar series with extended Q&A geared towards restoration on private lands.

Presentations include:
1) Experiential Tips from the Field – Working Successfully with Private Land Owners – Shelly Simmons, Purgatoire Watershed Weed Management Collaborative
2) Managing Private Wetlands for Birds – Kelsea Holloway, Bird Conservancy/Natural Resource Conservation Service
3) Biological Control in Colorado – Nina Louden, USDA Palisade Insectary: The CDA Insectary, located in Palisade Colorado, provides and monitors biological controls on public and private lands for controlling further spread of invasive non-native pest species such as tamarisk, field bindweed, and Canada thistle. Our biocontrols include host-specific insects, mites, and even a fungus that damage invasive weeds throughout the state. Successful biocontrol implementation is a long-term solution for the management of invasive species when other tactics including mechanical removal or pesticide application have too steep an economic or environmental cost.
Each presentation will be 20 minutes, followed by up to an hour of interactive Q&A.

Big Data for Bird Conservation

| IMBCR, Science | No Comments

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.

Living on the Land

| Land Stewardship, Stewardship | No Comments

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. But forced solitude leads to unexpected new perspectives, including a stronger connection to the land, nature, and community.

Recite Me, A New Accessibility Tool

| Uncategorized | No Comments

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!

Beavers, Our Secret Superheroes
