    Nic Korte: No Boundaries for Wildlife: Saving Tropical Birds in the Pikes Peak Region

    Nic Korte is a forty-year resident of Grand Junction, Colorado. He has been the Conservation Chairman for Grand Valley Audubon for more than two decades. Simultaneously, he has led a Western Screech-Owl project that has engaged several hundred Grand Valley citizens and has resulted in record counts of this small native owl. His volunteer work in the conservation community culminated in his being the 2015 recipient of the Richard G. Levad Award, awarded by the Bird Conservancy of the Rockies which recognizes individuals who “have provided distinguished service to the ornithological community, made scholarly contributions to the field of ornithology and/ or have enthused others about conserving birds and their habitats.” In July 2019, nominated by Audubon Rockies, Nic received the William Dutcher Award from the National Audubon Society for his “leadership in the birding community of Western Colorado for over four decades and his continual voice for the environment, birds, and the conservation challenges they face every day.” In 2020, Ten Jungle Days, Nic’s paean to the tropical rain forest combined with memoir and thoughts on the future, was published by Outskirts Press.

    Nic Korte has journeyed to the American tropics (Mexico, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, Peru, Colombia, Panama) more than 40 times and has personally documented sightings of more than 2000 species of birds. He has had the good fortune of many marvelous experiences but has also witnessed much destruction and loss. These observations have resulted in his upcoming presentation entitled “There are no boundaries for wildlife: Saving Tropical Birds in The Pike’s Peak Region.”
