About BCNA

The Boulder County Nature Association (BCNA) is a private, non-profit, publicly funded organization committed to preservation of the cultural and natural history of Boulder County and adjacent areas of the Colorado Front Range.

BCNA's mission is to educate, inform, and inspire for the purpose of conserving and promoting resilient natural ecosystems in our region. We are pleased to offer research funding by giving small grants for projects consistent with our mission. 

One of our continuing tasks is gathering information about Boulder County's natural and cultural history. We conduct natural area studies, flora and fauna studies, historical research, wildlife inventories, and geological research.

General Grants

General BCNA grants, up to $3,000, fund projects that will add to our understanding of the natural history of Boulder County or will augment the existing documentation of the County’s ecosystems.

Past projects include a survey of butterfly species, a study of bat species and their ecological requirements, pika habitat and climate change, and a comparison of flora and fauna adjacent to trails that allow dogs and don’t allow dogs, among many others. Exceptional proposals may be considered for funding at a slightly higher level. Proposals are judged on their scientific rigor, prudent use of resources, and the potential benefit to natural resource conservation and management along the Front Range.
