WHAT OUR COMMUNITY SAYS
“Denver Audubon has persevered so long, which is a tribute to the work and dedication of a community of people who are brought together because of the birds.”
“I am so pleased to be able to support an organization that protects, through education, all that I really care about.”
“I think it is so cool that we can go take a walk somewhere in a local park or a wildlife refuge and see so many different species no matter what time of the year.”
“Denver Audubon’s programs are amazing. No matter your skill level, knowledge, or interest in birds or conservation, you’ll learn something new at any program and leave inspired to do a little bit more to protect birds and their habitats.”
“I just wanted to thank leaders and organizers for the wonderful opportunity for children (and adults!) to learn more about nature and its inhabitants. My children enjoyed the program very much, it was well organized and presented. We will definitely be attending classes that are available in the future!”
“Our son is a brain tumor survivor and his behavior can make it difficult for our family to fit in public. I really appreciate having a fun, social activity at the Audubon Nature Center where we can all fit in. Thank you for all you do!”
“Thank you for all your hard work this year for Junior Naturalists. Both my girls . . . have been inspired to spend more time outside enjoying the beauty of nature around us!”
