It may be that givers are seen as leaders, or that through giving we build social capital. It could be that people who give are happy. Surveys show that those who give to charity are 43 percent more likely than people who don’t give to say they’re very happy people. Happy people show up for work more and work longer hours. Ask any business person who they’d prefer to hire and they’ll say happy people.
It is the Klamath Basin Audubon’s Winter Wings Festival, a celebration of the thousands of eagles, hawks, swans, geese, and other waterfowl that flock to our area every winter. This incredible concentration of wildlife is literally viewed from all our backyards. Upper Klamath Lake, Link River, Lake Ewauna, Miller Island, and all the USFWS National Wildlife Refuges surrounding Klamath are some of the most renowned hotspots to view this winter spectacle.
Some of the most spectacular days in Klamath County are nestled between November and March, when snow-covered mountains, trees and fields beautifully contrast against the vast, blue sky.

Cross-country skiers, downhill skiers and snowboarders are already looking forward to slapping on the equipment and making tracks. If your winter jam doesn’t include skiing or snowboarding, check out these ideas to have snow much fun in and around the Klamath Basin.
