Spring has sprung, and migratory birds are making their way back to the Klamath Siskiyou Bioregion. Klamath Bird Observatory (KBO) is preparing by dusting off field gear, mapping out survey sites, and hiring summer staff. Each staff member has their own favorite thing to look forward to this field season: starting a new project, expanding an active project, or wrapping up data collection. This issue highlights the work of Dr. Sarah Rockwell and her team.
Klamath Bird Observatory (KBO) FUNdraising events are organized and hosted by the KBO board. They have been working hard on this amazing spring lineup.

Registration for events will open a month before the event. Some have limited spots so make sure to mark your calendar.
The Garden Party at Grizzly Peak Winery is host to 4 astounding artists, Tish Mcfadden, Beth Martin, Judy Bjorlie, and Paula Fong.

There isn’t a better way to celebrate Mother Earth.
