Bird Conservancy of the Rockies provides rich environmental learning opportunities for groups of all ages through field trips and outreach programs for groups such as Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, after school programs, youth development programs, corporate groups, clubs, assisted living facilities, and senior centers.

A minimum of 10 participants is required for programs in which Bird Conservancy educators come to your site. Fees range from 50 cents to 10 dollars per person. Mileage may be charged for programs 25 miles or more from our headquarters in Brighton, Colorado.

Bird Tales is a program for residents in assisted living homes and memory care centers. It is a dynamic, unique and low-cost therapeutic program that brings the natural world of birds to people living with dementia. Bird Tales consists of therapeutic activities that encourage participants to connect with birds on a multi-sensory level: sight, sound, smell and touch.
The cost of the Bird Tales program is $3 per person if facilitated by a Bird Conservancy staff member and $1 per person if facilitated by one of our trained volunteers.
