Birds of Winter Camp

December 27, 2023 @ 9:00 am - December 29, 2023 @ 3:00 pm MST


School is out and birds are in! Join us as we explore what it takes for birds to survive the winter at Barr Lake. Each day will focus on different aspects of how Birds are adapted to survive in winter while exploring different ways we as birders, scientists and stewards of the land can help conserve birds.

NEW FOR 2023: Each day is available as a separate registration so you can select the dates that best fit your schedule. Please select the days you’d like your camper to attend, whether that’s one, two or all three! See descriptions below for each days theme. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER!

Additionally, parents and guardians are encouraged (but not required) to join in the fun for Friday’s program. If you anticipate joining your camper(s) please let us know by selecting that option during registration.

Wednesday- Join us for a deep dive into studying the waterfowl that flock to Barr Lake! We’ll practice our binocular skills, put some waterfowl ID to the test and get out to explore around the wintry environment that is Barr lake.

Thursday- Thursday is all about the science of studying the birds of Colorado. From talking about telemetry to learning how to orienteering we’ll be learning many different ways that Bird Conservancy scientists work to conserve birds.

Friday- Barr Lake is the place to be to see and observe Bald Eagles in winter! On Friday families are welcome to join in for a morning venturing out to wildlife refuge portion of the lake to see our visiting eagles on the ice!

Scholarships are available. Please complete this form: birdconservancy.org/scholarship-birdcamp BEFORE you register and wait for a reply from a Bird Conservancy staff member.
