Welcome to BCNA
The Boulder County Nature Association is a private, non-profit membership organization committed to preserving the natural history of our region through research, documentation, and public education. We conduct field studies of wildlife and native plant communities; provide natural history information to public agencies; offer field ecology classes on bats, birds, butterflies, wild orchids, geology; and organize an annual symposium on the status of Boulder County ecosystems.To learn how you can participate, click on Volunteer Opportunities, Classes, or Publications and Research.
BCNA News and Announcements
An archive of downloadable audio from the monthly series of short programs on KGNU, featuring Steve Jones and Ruth Carol Cushman. For each program, they visit a Boulder County nature site to record sounds there and discuss topics of interest. They are also the authors of Wild Boulder County: A Seasonal Guide to the Natural World. Available from Mountain Press or local bookstores. Like the Nature Almanac broadcasts, the book covers a variety of topics and also suggests places to visit.
There is a Web page for each month with pictures and text in addition to the audio links. The mp3 files typically are about 3.5 MB.
