COSA NAI Front Range Interpreters Gathering

Greetings, COSA!

Our Front Range National Association for Interpretation group is attempting to get back to a little more normalcy and restart some of our seasonal gatherings. Thanks to Sherry Nickolaus from Bird Conservancy of the Rockies for offering to host this gathering. Please see the invitation below, and feel free to pass this along to anyone who is interested. You do not have to be a member of NAI to attend, and this is a free event. To register, please send your name, email address, and organization to me at dprice. Thank you!

Tuesday, August 31, 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.

Bird Conservancy of the Rockies

14500 Lark Bunting, Brighton, CO

Join us at Bird Conservancy of the Rockies’ Environmental Learning Center for a Native and Sensory Garden Tour, birding and networking! Bring your lunch (we do have a microwave if anyone needs to warm something up) and meet us at the picnic tables in the backyard for an outdoor lunch! Bird Conservancy will provide drinks, snacks and a light dessert. Tours will start at 12:15p and will wind through our new Native and Sensory Gardens that have been designed to be bird friendly and welcoming to all. As we tour the gardens we would love to hear your feedback on the most effective ways to interpret the space as we finalize the signage. We will also provide binoculars and field guides to do a little birding around our Environmental Learning Center. The program will wrap up around 1:30p to leave plenty of time to network and reconnect with each other!

We will be outside for the entirety of the program so be sure to bring sunscreen, bug repellent, hats and water bottles. You will have access to bathrooms and sinks to refill your water bottles if needed.

Bird Conservancy of the Rockies is located at 14500 Lark Bunting Lane in Brighton, Colorado. We are at the intersection of I-76 and Bromley Lane. Go east on Bromley Lane past the Kum&Go gas station and over the railroad tracks. Turn right (south) immediately after crossing the railroad tracks and follow the road all the way to the end. There is a green gate at the end of the road, pass through the gate and come up into the upper parking lot designated for Bird Conservancy Staff and Volunteers. Once you have parked, follow the paths around the stone house to the backyard! If you have any trouble please feel free to call or text Sherry Nickolaus at 303-817-4391 for assistance.

We look forward to seeing you on August 31st! 11 –Sherry Nickolaus, Bird Conservancy of the Rockies
