Nature Writing Workshop – Week 2

March 16 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm MDT

$60

Join Bird Conservancy for a 4-week writing workshop focused on strengthening your connection to nature through writing. Each 1.5 hour session will include writing exercises, working with other writers and responding to their writing, and learning new ways to connect nature and improve  your own writing practice. You will also be given prompts for the week and will be expected to submit and respond to work before the next session.

Writers of all types and levels are welcome –  poetry or prose, beginning or advanced, we would love to have you!

The Workshop will be 4-weeks long, on March 9, 16, 23, and 30, from 5 – 6:30pm, and will cost $60 in total. We will host it on Zoom weekly, and the link will be sent to you after you register.
If you have any questions, please contact Kelsey Mazur, Outreach & Volunteer Coordinator, at [email protected]

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

| Stewardship | No Comments

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!

Playa Lakes

| Land Stewardship | No Comments

Ever notice what appear to be small ponds on the grasslands during spring? These are ‘playa lakes’ — temporary wetlands that dot the prairies of the western Great Plains. Playas are shallow depressions lined with clay soil that holds rain water. Healthy playas are a win-win for water conservation and birds. They benefit people by helping replenish groundwater, filtering water and assisting with flood control. They also provide wildlife habitat and important stopover points for migrating birds. Over the years, many playas have become degraded and are disappearing from the landscape. However, with proper restoration and management, playas can return to their full potential.

X Marks the Spot!

| Land Stewardship | No Comments

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.
