AKNW

Klamath Bird Observatory achieves bird conservation in the Pacific Northwest and throughout the ranges of our migratory birds. Emphasizing high-caliber science and the role of birds as indicators, we inform and improve natural resource management. Recognizing that conservation occurs across many fronts, we also nurture an environmental ethic through community outreach and education. We owe our success to committed donors, volunteers, staff, and partners who demonstrate that each of us can contribute to a legacy of abundant bird populations and healthy land, air, and water.

Sarah Rockwell, PhD

RESEARCH BIOLOGIST

Sarah manages KBO's bird monitoring work on the Trinity River Restoration Program in northwestern California. The goal of this research is to determine how changes in habitat structure associated with river restoration are related to bird abundance, diversity, and demography.

Results are used to inform and assess riparian restoration activities, using birds as indicators of a functional riparian ecosystem.

Sarah joined KBO in 2013 after completing her doctorate at the University of Maryland and the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center, where she studied the ecology of the endangered Kirtland’s Warbler. She earned her B.A. in Biology and Environmental Studies in 2002 from Kalamazoo College, in her home state of Michigan.

Sarah has worked on many avian research projects, with field sites in such picturesque locations as Hawai’i, Venezuela, northern Arizona, central California, the South Carolina Low Country, and northern Michigan.
