CONSERVATION BIRDING TOUR
September 9, 2022 - September 11, 2022
Join Bird Conservancy of the Rockies for an amazing weekend of exploration and discovery in the grasslands and mountains of Colorado’s Front Range.
Our trip includes a visit to Chico Basin Ranch near Colorado Springs to experience nearly 90,000 acres of grasslands, one of the largest uninterrupted stretches of sand sage and shortgrass prairie left in the U.S. From there, our excursion heads into the higher altitudes of the Rocky Mountains, with opportunities to see and learn firsthand about conservation projects.
When not in the field, guests will enjoy wonderful accommodations and dining in Colorado Springs. Each evening will feature a discussion led by Bird Conservancy of the Rockies staff exploring our Science, Land Stewardship, and Education activities and the impacts they have had over the past three decades. With a small group size, the trip will give guests a high level of access to scientists, birding experts and conservation practitioners and the opportunity for deep learning about the challenges and successes in the bird conservation world.
