The 2023 Eugene Christmas Bird Count (ECBC) is on Sunday, December 31, 2023. Yes, this…
A Newly Formed Club on the University of Oregon Campus… Exciting things are happening on the University of Oregon campus! A team of committed environmental- and avian-conscious students have formed the Students of Eugene Bird Society.
This ragtag group of conservationists and birders has already made its impact felt on the community. Its first major project was assembling 600 activity bags for the Eugene Public Library to distribute to Lane County youth. Inside these bags were pollinator-themed coloring pages/trading cards, stickers, wildflower seeds, and info sheets about how to sow them.
The club is seeking recognition from the National Audubon as part of their initiative to support the next generation of environmentalists. Emma Koelbl, one of the club leaders, has high aspirations for the club next year, and we here at LCAS can’t wait to be a part of the meaningful work they accomplish.
