KBO Community Education Returns with Two New Classes in November 2020

Join Shannon Rio for an outdoor Lunch and Learn “Birding at North Mountain Park” on November 13th, and a virtual class “Wintering Birds of the Rogue Valley” on November 16th via Zoom.

Friday, November 13th
12-1:30pm at the Gazebo at North Mountain Park
(Rain or Shine)
Cost: $20 donation to KBO

Bring your mask, lunch, binoculars (if you have them) and enjoy a Covid-safe 90-minute class on the birds of North Mountain where we will be listening and looking for our local birds. There is space in the Nature Centers covered gazebo for 14 participants to be seated 6 feet apart. We encourage you to invite someone from your household or from your life that you would like to introduce to birding. If weather allows, we may walk around part of the park. Some birds to expect: Killdeer, Sparrows, Downy Woodpecker, Towhee, Crows, Kingfisher, and we usually see an unexpected visitor! Binoculars will be available for those who do not have them. To sign up, email Shannon Rio at

Monday, November 16th
6-7:30pm via Zoom

Because of our rich biodiversity, some birds live here in the Rogue Valley all year round. Using scientific information, stories, photos, and bird song, this 90-minute, interactive Zoom presentation will help you get acquainted with our resident birds as we explore their traits, behavior, and fun facts about them.

This class is offered without charge, though a donation to KBO is encouraged. We encourage you to invite a friend or family member, perhaps someone who is curious about birds and does not know about KBO as a way of growing our nature-loving family. To sign up, email Shannon Rio at You will receive a Zoom invitation via email.
