The Boulder County Audubon Teen Naturalists program offers middle and high school students the opportunity to explore many facets of the natural world and their interactions. The group participates in wildlife surveys (birds, bats, butterflies, etc.), bioblitzes, nature photography workshops, and other outdoor activities.
All our events are open to middle school students, high school students, and recent graduates and are always free.
We hope you can join us for one or more of our fall events! Please email or call Steve Jones (contact info below) if you have questions. Thanks to all of you who responded to our questions, and we trust we’ve come up with some good activities. For now, we need to know who is interested in the October trip so we can do a little more planning.
Sunday, December 17, 7 AM-midafternoon. Boulder County Audubon Christmas bird count. You’ll have the option of joining one of several groups on this count, which is one of the oldest in North America. Potluck dinner and always fun compilation afterwards in East Boulder.
Saturday, January 13 We’ll take our annual trip to the Wheat Ridge Greenbelt along Clear Creek to photograph wild ducks. This is where I have gotten almost all my best close-up duck photos, so I hope you can join us for this one as well.
Teen Naturalists Share Their Knowledge
We encourage our teen naturalists to be active community members and to share their knowledge in different ways. One of our teen naturalists, Jasey Chander, publishes a newsletter all about things she’s learning. Read recent editions of Jasey’s Bird House newsletter here.
Joel Such, cofounder of the teen naturalist program, spent five months in Central America after graduating from high school last year, mostly helping out with bird banding and other birds conservation projects.
Joel has been able to work professionally as a wildlife technician since graduating from high school, and he just landed a three-month volunteer position banding birds in three different locations in Costa Rica this fall and early winter. He plans to start college next fall.
