Talk and Walk Community Education Events Becoming Popular

Klamath Bird Observatory’s Talks and Walks program is growing in popularity! This Board directed program invites community members to visit our headquarters in Ashland where you willCalliope Hummingbird learn about birds in the Klamath-Siskiyou Bioregion.  Then, participants venture into the field to experience firsthand the birds that are the focus of Klamath Bird Observatory’s science-based conservation efforts.

The program is getting lots of attention.  A recent article in the Medford Mail Tribune’s Outdoor Journal section featured the program – click here to read that article.  The program was also discussed during an interview with Board President Harry Fuller on Jefferson Public Radio’s Jefferson Exchange – click here to listen.
