One of the biggest bird conservation threats is habitat loss. To address this, our Habitat Hero program provides people, businesses, and cities with the resources to create bird habitat in their own communities. By planting bird-friendly gardens with native plants, not only are we creating more beautiful and water-efficient communities; we’re connecting people to nature. Learn how you can conserve birds through native gardening.

2017 Year in Review!

Habitat Hero Wildscape Ambassadors Program had a banner year in 2017. In fact, we had so much interest in the workshops that we had to create additional ones.

Made in the Shade: Coffee & Birds Unite at Human Bean

As we looked to overhaul our front grassy space at the Human Bean, we sought out local dedicated stewards of the land to help us get there while adding to our local environment. Audubon Rockies was our guide & ally in this mission and we could not have asked for better partners.”
