Reesa Conrey, Colorado Parks and Wildlife, will present information about how CPW and many partners, including Bird Conservancy of the Rockies have begun a 4-year study, and monitoring of population trends, habitat use, and human impacts on bald eagles along Colorado’s most densely populated corridor. The Colorado Front Range is experiencing rapid human population growth, accompanied by more housing and commercial development, energy infrastructure, and recreational use, and this area contains a high concentration of bald eagles, growing from zero nesting pairs in the 1970s to more than 90 pairs today

Reesa Conrey has been an Avian Researcher with Colorado Parks and Wildlife since 2012. Based in Fort Collins, she focuses on grassland birds and raptors statewide.

Audubon members, the public—all are welcomed to join into this virtual program!
