KBO Community Education: “Birding the Klamath Basin” with Shannon Rio

Monday, December 7th
6:00-7:30pm via Zoom

A Bald Eagle in the Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge

The Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge is one of the most amazing Wildlife Refuges in our country. It is part of the Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuge Complex and was established in 1908 by Teddy Roosevelt. It is the first refuge protected specifically for the benefit of migratory birds.

We invite you to join Shannon Rio on December 7th via Zoom for a virtual presentation, “Birding the Klamath Basin.” Shannon will present a virtual visit to the Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge by sharing beautiful photographs, and the history of the land and the birds.

The virtual visit will take you to the refuge in winter, so you can get to know some of the glorious birds you might see there during this chilly time of year. The virtual visit can be an introduction on how to travel to and explore the refuge, or you can relax and enjoy the visual experience of visiting this magical, protected place from the warmth and comfort of your home.

There is no charge for this event. Donations to the Klamath Bird Observatory are encouraged.

To sign up, email Shannon Rio at
