Primarily in the winter months, BBO runs an active education program called BirdSmart. Staff give presentations focusing on bird conservation, diversity, research and climate change to schools, day homes, children’s nature groups (such as Scouts), senior’s residences / associations, and other groups. A live educational bird is brought to every presentation to further reinforce the material taught during the presentations. This year we are offering WEBINARS due to covid.Learn More
The BBO has established an Endowment Fund to help secure future research efforts!
As a non-profit, BBO relies on Grants, Casinos and Donations to continue the work we do. None of which can be counted on from year to year. Our intention, by creating this Endowment Fund with the Edmonton Community Foundation, is to eventually provide lifelong support to our organization.

Using our interactive eBird map, you can find out what birds are hanging around the BBO based on sightings from other birders. You can also contribute to this resource by entering your sightings directly to eBird!Learn More
