The Audubon Society of Greater Denver prides itself on the ability to engage people with the world outdoors. Society experts provide hands-on experiences to inspire people to respect nature and protect creatures big and small.
Birds are one type of animal that the non-profit helps every year. Different species act as visual mascots for habitat conservation and wildlife mitigation efforts. It also supports local bird watching groups through the annual Birdathon fundraiser.
“Birds are found in every neighborhood, parking lot, open space, and backyard,” said AGS outreach coordinator Kate Hogan. “We specialize in sharing fun and interesting information about the birds of Colorado through hands-on learning activities, as well as advising on how to create a backyard bird sanctuary at your home, school, or place of business.”
These wildlife experts will be on hand at the September 17th Trail Walk to share information and talk about upcoming workshops. Trail Walk participants can test their knowledge of bird calls and look through binoculars during the half-mile loop walk. Tickets to the Trail Walk and Country Fair available here.
All proceeds go to further projects and environmental education for the Village and greater Colorado areas.
