Why Should We Plant Native?
April 14 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm MDT
You might have heard that you should plant native. But do you know why? “Because it’s good for the environment,” while correct, doesn’t do justice describing the complex role native plants play. It’s much more than that! Come learn about ecosystems, the advantages of native plants, and how invasive species disrupt the delicate balance of nature.
This presentation is a part of a Girl Scout Gold Award project, the highest award a girl scout can earn. Anna Hartwick, Avery Lankford, and Jenna Frisch will be presenting as guest speakers.
Anna is a past Bird Conservancy summer camper. She has spent the last several years in our Leaders in Training program for our Bird Camps helping youth connect with birds while in nature. All donations made will go to furthering our Bird Camp programs and youth leadership opportunities.

The past year of pandemic life has been a struggle for most us in many ways.

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