Who We Are

Advancing bird and habitat conservation through science, education, and partnerships

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.

Why Support Bird Education?

Klamath Bird Observatory recognizes that conservation occurs across many fronts and therefore we offer education programs that nurture a conservation ethic in our communities.

Birds are the indicators of our wellbeing. As such, our education programs foster a community that protects the natural and economic resources that are essential to both birds and people.

Birding Means Business – Birdwatchers spend $36 billion annually in pursuit of their hobby. In doing so they enrich the economics of the bird-friendly places they visit.
