What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Education and Outreach

We provide educational and outreach programs through community presentations, tabling at events, conducting guided tours on the condor refuges, and participating in workdays on the condor wildlife refuges.
One of our most popular programs is our public tours of the Bitter Creek NWR and Hopper Mountain NWR. These tours allow participants access to what are normally closed refuges and provide a good opportunity to see condors in the wild, all while receiving a wealth of information about California condors, the Condor Recovery Program, and general refuge ecology.
Our group aims to educate and engage the community in the recovery of California condors. To do this, we provide talks for various organizations, such as schools, scouting troops, environmental clubs, and church groups. Our volunteers staff dozens of educational booths at Earth Days, Street Fairs, and zoo events, and other gatherings each year.
