Family Christmas Bird Count

December 19 @ 8:45 am - 11:00 am MST


Join Bird Conservancy of the Rockies for a monthly educational Family & Homeschool program. Each month we’ll focus on a different subject or area of interest to share with your family. Participants should expect each activity to largely take place outside and a parent or guardian should plan to stay with their child(ren) through the duration of the program.

December’s theme is ‘Family Christmas Bird Count’. Did you know that every winter since 1900, scientists and birders alike have gathered together in an effort to count birds? We invite your family to join us for a morning of citizen science, observing the birds around Barr Lake and discussing the impact we can have on understanding bird populations.

Accessibility Information: Handicap parking is available at the meeting location along with accessible restrooms. Some of this program may include slow-paced walking along flat gravel or dirt paths. Accessible equipment will be available for use during this program.

Scholarships are available. Please complete THIS FORM BEFORE you register and wait for a reply from a Bird Conservancy staff member.


This program takes place at the Barr Lake State Park Nature Center located at 13401 Picadilly Rd., Brighton, CO. Please note, a $10 Daily or Annual Colorado State Parks Pass is required for entry into the park at all times. Pets are not permitted within the wildlife refuge area of the park.

Our community of practice is to be an organization that welcomes people of all backgrounds, beliefs, colors and creeds to join in, benefit from and contribute to our mission. We strive for inclusivity of all persons regardless of race, color, sex, age, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, or other status.
