The Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuge Complex is comprised of six separate refuge areas. The Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge portion was established in 1908 by Teddy Roosevelt and is the first refuge protected specifically for the benefit of migratory birds. Nearby, Tulelake National Wildlife Refuge protects more than 39,000 acres of open water and farmland that support migratory birds.
On February 22nd, Shannon Rio will tell stories about some of the birds that migrate through Lower Klamath and Tulelake National Wildlife Refuges, where she and her husband Kirk are regular visitors. In this virtual presentation you’ll see beautiful photographs, hear fun facts, and gain a sense of what birds you might see there any month of the year. Shannon will also share how you can get to her favorite areas of the Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuge Complex, and where to explore when you arrive.
This event is FREE. Donations to the Klamath Bird Observatory are encouraged.
