People will only conserve what they care about, but people are increasingly disconnected from nature. Our Community Naturalists deliver in-person environmental education programs to people of all ages to create lasting connections with nature in their communities. To engage even more people in bird conservation, we develop trainings and resources for educators.
If you're a parent, teacher, or educator, we can help you foster a love of nature and interest in science among your students. Download our free education resources, learn new curricula at an educator workshop, get involved in volunteer science programs, or join us for a field program in Wyoming or Colorado! Sign up for emails to hear about upcoming opportunities. For questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Based out of Pagosa Springs, our Community Naturalist program provides youth and adult education programming to southwest Colorado and northern New Mexico. Learn about the programs we offer and how you can get involved.

Lights Out Colorado aims to help Coloradans save millions of birds.
Every year billions of birds migrate through North American in the spring and fall. More than 80 percent of them travel at night, navigating with the night sky. However, as they pass over big cities on their way they can become disoriented by bright artificial lights and skyglow, often causing them to collide with buildings or windows. Learn how you can help save them.
