KBO Presents Our First Virtual Community Education Program

Join us Wednesday, June 3rd from 6:30-8:00pm for KBO’s first virtual community education program, presented by Shannon Rio via Zoom.

Birds, Beauty, Art, and Nature (What’s in a Name…)

This visual and auditory presentation teaches about local birds while exploring how they got their common and Latin names. For example, why is a Killdeer called a Killdeer and what does its scientific name tell us? Using stories, scientific facts, photography, bird sounds and poetry, this is a fun opportunity to learn about the birds that live all around us. No birding knowledge is necessary, however curiosity and humor are welcome prerequisites for joining this virtual class.

This class is free! To sign up, email Shannon Rio –
