Celebrating 30 years!

2024 marks a significant milestone for the Intermountain Bird Observatory as we celebrate 30 years of dedicated bird research, outreach, conservation, and education! Since our inception in 1994, we have been committed to understanding and protecting avian species across the Intermountain West (and around the globe!) and we are thrilled to commemorate this journey with all of you.

To mark this special occasion, we invite you to join us in the celebration. We have an exciting lineup of events planned throughout the year, designed to engage and inspire bird enthusiasts of all ages. Here’s a glimpse of what’s in store:

  1. Join us on June 12th to celebrate 30 years of research, outreach, and education! RSVP for this free event here.
  2. Exclusive Project Opportunities: Participate in our unique auction! It features “behind the scenes” opportunities on IBO projects that are typically closed to the public. Bid for a chance to get involved in our conservation efforts in a special way.
  3. Bird Banding at Research Stations: Experience firsthand the captivating process of bird banding at one of our research stations. Witness the research that started it all!
  4. Special-Edition IBO T-shirts: Don’t miss the chance to grab our stunning new IBO t-shirt, featuring original artwork by @falcofous. Show your support for bird conservation while sporting this beautiful design. Be sure to sign up for our mailing list to get first dibs when these shirts go on sale!

We are immensely grateful for the support and enthusiasm of our community over the past three decades. Your passion for birds and nature continues to drive our mission forward. Let’s come together to celebrate this remarkable journey and look ahead to the future of bird conservation.
