Greater Sage-GrouseIn partnership with the Gunnison Climate Working Group, The Nature Conservancy, and Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory, Audubon Rockies is monitoring the response of breeding birds to a collaborative restoration project involving more than a dozen federal, state and local agencies. Designed to increase the resiliency of the landscape in the face of climate change, the project uses simple rock structures that direct water flow to rebuild and restore alpine wet meadows and riparian areas at numerous sites across central Colorado's Gunnison Basin. Becky Gillette will present a slideshow and bird songs recorded during the June monitoring season, and will discuss learning the art of birding by ear in the sagebrush steppe.

Becky GilletteBecky Gillette is a Senior Educator with Audubon Rockies, based in Pagosa Springs, Colorado. In partnership with landowner Terry Hershey, Becky directs Audubon's Four Mile Ranch Environmental Education program, providing science and nature education to every student at Pagosa Springs Elementary School, as well as students from the Jicarilla Apache Reservation in northern New Mexico. Through the associated Volunteer Educators Program, she has trained nearly 70 adult community members as naturalists and science teachers to lead field programs at Four Mile Ranch. Becky also provides educational programming for students in Gunnison and Telluride, and coordinates Audubon's breeding bird surveys for the Gunnison Basin Restoration and Resiliency Project.

Becky holds a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology from Colorado College, and a Master of Science in Environmental Studies from Antioch University in Keene, New Hampshire, where she specialized in Environmental Education and Interpretation. [More]
