Colorado Bluebird Project

Bluebird Project Training

Curt FrankenfeldColorado is the summer home to two native bluebird species, Western bluebirds and Mountain bluebirds. Both bluebird populations have declined significantly throughout the United States due to habitat loss.

The Colorado Bluebird Project is being coordinated by the Audubon Society of Greater Denver and aims to “improve the vitality of bluebird populations throughout the State of Colorado, and to inform and educate the public about bluebirds.” Douglas Land Conservancy got involved in the Colorado Bluebird Project a few years ago, partnering with Douglas County Open Space to install and monitor bluebird boxes on County open space properties. New boxes have been installed at  Spruce Mountain and Hidden Mesa Open Spaces to welcome more bluebirds in 2017

DLC is looking for volunteers to help monitor the boxes from April until August. Training will be provided. To volunteer, email DLC at info@douglaslandconservancy.org — and you can help our native bluebird population thrive!

Thanks to everyone that expressed interest in volunteering for the 2017 Bluebird program through DLC!  All of our volunteer needs for the 2017 program have been filled.  

If you are interested in volunteering for the 2018 program, please send an email to the address above.
