OVERVIEW OF ORGANIZATION, PROGRAMS, AND PHILOSOPHY:
Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory (RMBO) conserves birds and their habitats through an integrated approach of science, education and stewardship (www.rmbo.org). Our work radiates from the Rockies to the Great Plains, Mexico and beyond. Our mission is advanced through sound science, achieved through empowering people, realized through stewardship and sustained through cross-border collaborations. Together, we are improving native bird populations, the land, and the lives of people. We monitor and identify population trends, research habitat needs, engage landowners and managers in wildlife and habitat stewardship, and educate diverse audiences.
The organization was founded in 1988, and educational programs built around its banding stations and Bald Eagle Watch were part of operations from the start. Since then, RMBO’s educational agenda has grown to also include K-12 School Field Trips and In-Class Programs, Home School Programs, Adult Education Programs, Family and Community Programs, a Volunteer Naturalist Program, a variety of Citizen Science projects, and Day and Overnight Summer Camps. RMBO engages approximately 25,000 people each year across a broad geographic spectrum, with around 200 of these individuals participating in our Summer Nature Camps, which are based out of the organization’s headquarters and Environmental Learning Center at the north end of Barr Lake State Park in Brighton, CO.
Using birds as the hook, RMBO Summer Nature Camps offer day and overnight camp sessions for youth between the ages of 2 and 17, with an emphasis on providing opportunities to safely explore and learn about the natural world and conservation. Camp sessions are designed as part of a progression to introduce children to the outdoors at a young age and build their skills over time, taking our youngest participants from basic, sensorial interactions with nature to a more sophisticated appreciation and understanding of their place in the natural world. Camps range from two-hour experiences with 2 to 5 year-olds and their parents to ten-day overnight camps for 15 to 17 year-olds, the latter of which has participants learning about, conducting, and presenting scientific research projects and exploring careers in natural resources. Ultimately, the desired outcome for all of our programs is for participants to become more interested in the world around them and, subsequently, better informed and engaged citizens.
