Please Become a 2020 KBO education Sponsor!
Klamath Bird Observatory recognizes that conservation occurs across many fronts and therefore we offer education programs that nurture a conservation ethic in our communities.
- Professional Education – Building generations of conservation practitioners by providing technical skill development and leadership through internships, workshops, and international capacity building.
- Community education – Providing unique and diverse learning opportunities that foster an appreciation for birds and an interest in science-based bird and habitat conservation.
Why Support Bird Education?
Birds are the indicators of our wellbeing. As such, our education programs foster a community that protects the natural and economic resources that are essential to both birds and people.
Birding Means Business – Birdwatchers spend $36 billion annually in pursuit of their hobby. In doing so they enrich the economics of the bird-friendly places they visit. Along with their binoculars, birders bring their pocket books to spend money on food, lodging, entertainment, gifts, and services.
