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.
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.
eBird Northwest is a regional portal of Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s international eBird program. It serves as the primary citizen science application of Avian Knowledge Northwest and provides content and services to bird‐watching enthusiasts and natural resource managers alike throughout the Pacific Northwest.
