Meet Audubon Rockies Habitat Hero Program CoordinatorJamie Weiss 

Jamie Weiss is the Habitat Heroes Coordinator for Audubon Rockies based out of the regional office in Fort Collins.  Habitat Heroes are people who practice a form of landscape stewardship, called ‘wildscaping’ – landscaping designed to attract and benefit birds, pollinators and other wildlife, large and small that help create bird-friendly communities.  Whether the landscape you tend to is a residential yard, a few pots on a balcony, a public park or schoolyard garden, Habitat Heroes believe in growing a healthy community.  By combating the loss of open spaces and creating green corridors that link your wildscape to larger natural areas by providing habitat for wildlife we can feel good about doing something positive for ourselves, the environment and our wild friends.

Along with her Bachelor degree in Marine Biology and Chemistry from University of North Carolina Wilmington, Jamie is a Certified Interpretive Guide as appointed by the National Association of Interpretation.  Jamie previously worked at Boyd Lake State Park and the Georgia Aquarium as an Educational Interpreter, providing families and individuals of all ages an awareness of conservation.  When not working, she is often leading an active lifestyle trying to keep up with her deaf Border Collie and Golden Retriever.  She enjoys working in her own garden, hiking, particularly “14ers”, camping, horseback riding, snowboarding, and is an avid fan of long distance running.  Jamie is excited to be a part of the Audubon Rockies team, “to help bring conservation home, one garden at a time!”
