Two decades of Klamath Bird Observatory science have informed the establishment, management, and expansion of the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument.
Since before its designation we have been conducting research and monitoring in the Monument area; our studies have included:
• Pre-monument breeding bird inventories
• Investigating the effects of livestock utilization on birds and habitats
• Measuring bird population demographics
• Evaluating opportunities for monument expansion.
The results of these studies have been provided to the Monument’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) stewards, the scientific community, and the public through peer-reviewed publications and reports to support the protection and management of this unique area.

Our science-driven partnership with the BLM and other monument supporters exemplifies the role of science in protecting and managing Federal lands.
