Bird conservation group seeks education, citizen-science volunteers

BRIGHTON, Colo. ¬– Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory’s annual Volunteer Open House is January 20 from 4 to 6 p.m. at 14500 Lark Bunting Lane east of Brighton. Everyone is welcome.

Information about citizen science, summer camps, school programs and other volunteer opportunities in the Denver Metro area will be available. Before and after a presentation at 4:30 p.m., environmental education staff will be available to talk with guests and show them RMBO’s Old Stone House headquarters and emerging environmental learning center.

Popular Option: Volunteer Naturalists
Among options for volunteers is the nonprofit’s popular Naturalists program. Those with an interest in environmental education who enjoy working outdoors with people of all ages are good candidates to join this team.

Once accepted into the Naturalist program, volunteers receive classroom and field training in basic ecology and ornithology, teaching techniques, public speaking and more. Volunteer naturalists play a key role in RMBO’s education programs by conducting in-class programs, field trips and outreach events.

Register for the volunteer open house by January 19 or get more information by contacting Abby Churchill at 303-659-4348 ext. 11 or
