Community Education

HarryFuller Malheur by Melody Noraas flipped (72ppi 4x)Our Community Education programming offers a diversity of learning opportunities that foster an appreciation for birds and an interest in conservation. We recognize that conservation occurs across many fronts, and therefore nurture a conservation ethic in our education and outreach programs. Conservation Birding is at the heart of everything we do—encouraging anyone who has an interest in birds and seeing birds to be actively involved in the conservation of birds and their habitats by contributing time, data, or funding.

Talks & Walks

KBO’s popular Talk & Walk classes are core to our Community Education programming. These two-part classes include an evening presentation followed by a field trip. Birding experts, conservation professionals, authors, and artists donate their time as instructors and field trip leaders.

Avian Knowledge Northwest

Avian Knowledge Northwest (AKNW), a regional node of the Avian Knowledge Network, is a data archive and decision support system focused on understanding the patterns and dynamics of bird populations of the Pacific Northwest.

Festivals and Public Outreach

Festivals are a very human thing—a celebration of our commonality, whatever the occasion. When the occasion involves birds all the better!
