KBO’s 2021-2022 FUNdraising Campaign Begins!

Klamath Bird Observatory’s fundraising effort has a new, exciting format this year: with no fundraising Gala in 2020 or 2021, KBO’s Board members are stepping up, as individuals, to offer you a variety of smaller group events. These are events that we think many of you will enjoy.

Board members will be hosting nearly a dozen recreational and educational gatherings with different themes. Think of these not so much as events but more as “parties.”

You will not only meet new people, have lots of fun, and learn things that you didn’t know you needed to know, you will also be supporting KBO! You can participate in such varied events as birding hikes, history walks, yoga, animation drawing, music and garden parties.

KBO relies on private donations to further our mission of advancing bird and habitat conservation through science, education and partnerships. By attending one or more of these events, you will help KBO achieve its goals.

So, if you love birds and believe in birds as indicators of environmental well being, sign up and donate! We look forward to seeing you at our special gatherings this year.

Our first three events have been scheduled:

  • On July 11th, join Lisa Michelbrink and other KBO Board members at Grizzly Peak Winery. We will start with a gentle yoga session under the oak trees, led by Board President and yoga teacher, Shannon Rio. We will then take a bird walk on the winery grounds. To finish the morning we will share light refreshments and conversation.
  • On July 25th, and then again on August 8th, we invite KBO supporters to join us for a “history walk into the past” through Ashland’s historic core. Our newest Board member, Jeff LaLande, is an archaeologist and historian. Jeff will take participants on a trip into Ashland’s past — from the Shasta Indians’ village where the Plaza is now and on through changes of recent decades.
