Thank you to everyone that shopped at the Ashland Co-op in March to support KBO. We raised over $7,000 and couldn’t be more thankful for our fantastic community. To top it off, Medford Co-op has picked KBO to be on the ballot for their 2024 Positive Change Program. If you are a Medford Co-op member, you can vote for us from 4/21 – 5/6.

Amanda is a KBO board member and a lover of all things bird and is excited to share. The preserve is owned and managed by the Southern Oregon Land Conservancy. Its 352 acres include several distinct habitats that support remarkable biodiversity, including at least 32 rare, declining, and uncommon plant and animal species. There isn’t a better way to celebrate Mother Earth.

Amanda Alford fell in love with birds for the first time at the Klamath Bird Observatory’s Mountain Bird Festival in 2016. She has been hooked on all things bird ever since! She is supported in her obsession by her husband Greg and children Chance and Salome, who have all come to love the flocks that frequent their feeders in southern Ashland. Her birding is often interrupted by her day job as a physician anesthesiologist with Anesthesia Associates of Medford. She was drawn to the science-driven mission of the Klamath Bird Observatory, believing in the power of good science to change the world in all the right ways. She hopes her involvement will help protect KBO’s important work for generations to come.
On Earth Day weekend Klamath Bird Observatory will not only be hosting Talk and Walks but we are also going to be at the Celebrate Earth Day event. This event is being hosted by Temple Emek Shalom and SOHEVA at Temple Emek Shalom on April 24th, 1 pm – 4 pm.

Temple Emek Shalom (TES) has announced a fun, free, informative, and interactive community event on Sunday, April 24th to celebrate the Earth Day message of protecting our environment. The celebration is open to everyone in the community and is geared to people of all ages, with information, music, food trucks, and activities for kids.
“Although Earth Day officially falls on April 22nd, we chose Sunday, April 24th to make our event accessible to everyone – adults, kids, the whole family,” said Pete Jorgensen, an event organizer. “This event is a great opportunity to come together, learn, try new technology first-hand, and celebrate the importance of a healthy planet.”
A major highlight will be the opportunity for licensed and insured drivers to test drive electric vehicles including the Arcimoto FUV manufactured in Eugene, OR, and the Mustang E and Kia Niro EV, which are sold locally by Lithia Motors’ Green Cars division.
More than a dozen organizations committed to environmental protection will be on-hand to share helpful information and answer questions about green practices and technology.
