Education Volunteer Training: Banding Field Trip Programs

August 21, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm MDT

Join us at this training to learn about our bird banding field trips, the curriculum, teaching strategies, and how to become a bird banding field trip program leader. Program leaders:

  • Lead groups of students or adults through structured bird banding focused field trips, including a bird walk, migration activity, and sharing information at the banding station
  • Work with different age groups, and be flexible in adapting your lessons to the appropriate grade level
  • Facilitate inquiry-based experiential learning
  • Embrace teachable moments

This training is for new volunteers, and is recommended as a refresher for returning volunteers.

If you’re interested, you are welcome to attend; no teaching experience is necessary, though experience with children is preferred. Applicants with a working knowledge of natural resources, natural history, ornithology, or who have the willingness to learn, are comfortable speaking in front of a group, and are reliable, adaptable, team players are encouraged to apply.

Programs vary in length, between 3 – 2 hours, dependent on program. Banding field trips occur late August – mid-October, Tuesday through Friday. Banding programs take place at the Barr Lake State Park Nature Center.

RSVP IS REQUIRED — please fill out this quick form or contact Kelsey Mazur, Program & Volunteer Coordianator, at [email protected] or 303-659-4348 x10 by Friday, August 16th. Thank you!
