KBAS provides opportunities for people of all ages to experience and appreciate our region's birds and other natural resources. We achieve this mission through educational programs, field trips, and Grants that support worthy local or regional projects.

   Monthly Programs

We meet on the second Thursday of each month from September through May with the exception of December and February from 6:30-8:30 pm. Meetings are held in the Mt Thielsen Room upstairs in the College Union of OIT in Klamath Falls. Meetings begin with a half hour of socializing followed by a short business/informational meeting. The featured program begins at approximately 7:15. See the current edition of our Grebe newsletter for details about upcoming programs.

   Other Educational Activities


Being blessed with a plethora of wilderness areas, marshes and forests, lakes and rivers, KBAS members know how important these areas are for humanity's well-being. We like to keep abreast of what we can do to help preserve our wilderness areas nation wide so that everyone has the opportunity to be touched by nature: to see a flock of song birds, to witness the flight of a raptor, to listen to the merry melody of a crystal clear spring. The National Audubon Society provides timely, pertinent updates on all of the important environmental issues at the national level and provides easy avenues for acting to preserve the wilderness areas within our nation. To be updated, click and join, free of charge, Audubon Action.

Contact phone numbers, addresses and emails are located for your various elected representatives. Taking a few minutes to drop a line to them on an issue dear to your heart is effective action. These people do listen especially when a constituent takes the effort and time to set forth their thoughts and opinions. It shows you are aware, educated and care about the issues. Thank you for taking the time to preserve the environment for the health of this generation and many generations to come.
