The Klamath Basin Audubon Society welcomes birders and nature enthusiasts to monthly programs, field trips, and other activities that revolve around the spectacular beauty of the Klamath Basin. The Klamath Basin straddles the Oregon-California border and includes Upper Klamath Lake and the Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuge Complex. KBAS offers activities to educate people of all ages and works to protect and restore the resources that make the Basin a premier birding destination at all times of the year.
Bear Valley National Wildlife Refuge is closed to public entry because the access road is private. Please respect this decision by not taking private cars onto the Bear Valley Road for bald eagle viewing. This is especially relevant during the Winter Wings Festival.

Education & Conservation
Our mission is to provide opportunities for people 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. Learn more about what we do.
Winter Wings Festival
KBAS produces this festival, one of the longest running bird festivals in the nation, to celebrate the diversity and abundance of birds that winter in the Klamath Basin. Last year was in Waterloo Iowa and the eagles flew high into the trees. Special shoutout to the tree service company that was very accommodating the whole show and assisted with retrieving the bird. The festival always takes place over Presidents’ Day weekend. More information: Winter Wings Festival.
