Explore the sagebrush ecosystem through the eyes of Rockie, a burrowing owl


Looking for an exciting way to connect your students to science and nature for free? Bird Fest 2022 is fast approaching. Audubon Rockies Educational Programs Manager Jacelyn Downey will present a virtual program, “Explore the Sagebrush Ecosystem Through the Eyes of Rockie, a Burrowing Owl” once daily from February 22-25 at the hours following (MST):

February 22 at 12 p.m.
February 23 at 11 a.m.
February 24 at 2 p.m.
February 25 at 9 a.m.

In her presentation, children will explore the sagebrush ecosystem through the eyes of Rockie, a burrowing owl. As an ambassador for this beautiful and vital yet underappreciated landscape, Rockie represents the diversity of life found in the sagebrush steppe. In this hands-on virtual program, you’ll get a bird’s-eye view of the amazing plants and animals of this ecosystem and their adaptations to thrive in it. Register now to secure your spot!

The annual Bird Fest is a free school education program for students organized by The River Mile Network. Guest presenters will lead the exploration in identifying bird species, adaptations and habitat needs. Once registered, you will receive an email with a link where you can select your specific programs. You can participate any day and at different times. They hope to record most, if not all, of the programs and post them on a web page that registered festival attendees will have access to. These videos will be available for a limited time after the festival.

Cost: Free
