| KBO | ,

Thursday, August 24th, 6:30-8:00pm

Ashland Outdoor Store, 37 3rd Street, Ashland, Oregon

This visual and auditory presentation teaches about local birds while exploring how they got their common and Latin names. Why is a Killdeer called a Killdeer and what does its scientific name tell us? Stories, scientific facts, photography, bird sounds, and even poetry¬†— this is a fun opportunity to learn about the birds that live all around us. No birding knowledge necessary, however curiosity and humor are welcome prerequisites for coming to this presentation.

Shannon Rio is a wildlife educator and President of the Klamath Bird Observatory board of directors. Her passion is connecting people with nature so that they will want to protect what they love.
