"Colorado Birding Challenge was an incredible experience for our family. I'm grateful for CFO helping keep our kids engaged with worthwhile and beautiful things!"

Our Impact

"CFO's generous gift is making a significant impact for the conservation of grassland birds. It's enabling the installation of a permanent Motus station that will track birds as they migrate across the Great Plains. CFO funding is restoring 346 acres of key habitat that benefits wintering birds in Chihuahua.
