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.
BIRDING AT NORTH MOUNTAIN PARK: Lunch and Learn
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 Center‘s 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
WINTERING BIRDS OF THE ROGUE VALLEY
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 email@example.com. You will receive a Zoom invitation via email.
Shannon Rio is president of the board of the Klamath Bird Observatory. She believes we are enriched by connecting to the world of nature and offers this class in the spirit of strengthening our ties to the natural world.
