KBO Science in the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument

Cascade Siskiyou National Monument Low Res GIF 1Two decades of Klamath Bird Observatory science have informed the establishment, management, and expansion of the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument. Since before its designation we have been conducting research and monitoring in the Monument area; our studies have included: 
 
• Pre-monument breeding bird inventories
• Investigating the effects of livestock utilization on birds and habitats
• Measuring bird population demographics
• Evaluating opportunities for monument expansion.
 
The results of these studies have been provided to the Monument’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) stewards, the scientific community, and the public through peer-reviewed publications and reports to support the protection and management of this unique area.

And today, right now, science needs you. Your support is more important than ever.
