The BBO has established an Endowment Fund to help secure future research efforts!
By contributing before December 16th, 2019 your donations are eligible for up to 2-to-1 matching by the Edmonton Community Foundation. Receive a tax receipt and leave a legacy behind now or just remember BBO in your will!
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.

Primarily in the winter months, BBO runs an active education program. Staff give presentations focusing on bird conservation, diversity, and research to schools, day homes, children’s nature groups (such as Scouts), senior’s residences / associations, and other groups. A live educational owl is brought to every event to further reinforce the material taught during educational presentations.Learn More
