Family Programs

Bird Conservancy of the Rockies’ family programs are designed with the whole family in mind and are extremely affordable, with costs ranging from just $1 to $25 per person.

Most programs take place at the Bird Conservancy’s Environmental Learning Center in Brighton, Colorado, although some programs take families on adventures into the mountains and other settings within a day’s drive.

Recurring family programs include the annual Christmas Bird Count for Kids, campfires, spring break snowshoe trips and various programs at partner events, especially those at Barr Lake State Park.


Birding by Canoe Saturday, May 19th 9:00am-12:30pm

Parents and children ages 7 and up can join Bird Conservancy educators and Barr Lake State Park rangers for a day of learning basic canoeing and birding skills, which will culminate with a guided canoeing tour around the north end of the lake to see what birds can be observed while on the water! 
Participants are encouraged to bring their own canoe, kayak, and binoculars to utilize during the program. Loaners of each can be reserved prior to the program on a first-come, first-serve basis. *Note: A parent/guardian must stay with child(ren) 
Pack a lunch to enjoy a picnic on the shore after the program!
