Education is a vital part of the mission of Audubon. Our local chapter provides opportunities for all generations, from children to elders. We strive to teach people about birds and their natural world, with a focus on place-based, active-learning approaches. We also strive to take advantage of the local knowledge of our community, especially as it relates to birds and the shared passion for conserving their native habitats.
Each year, our chapter offers two educational programs on bird-related topics, as well as the occasional symposium or workshop on a special topic of interest. Many of these events are free and open to the public. For upcoming events, please consult our calendar on our Facebook page.
In an effort to provide educational programs to our community, we partner with local groups that include:
- Audubon Rockies ( http://rockies.audubon.org/audubon-rockies-education-and-teacher-resources)
- The Brinton Museum ( http://www.bbmandm.org/)
- Science Kids ( http://science-kids.org/)
We encourage community participation in educational, citizen-science programs that include:
- The Great Backyard Bird Count ( http://gbbc.birdcount.org/)
- NestWatch (http://nestwatch.org/)
- FeederWatch ( http://feederwatch.org/)
