The East Bohemia Branch of the Czech Society for Ornithology at the East Bohemian Museum in Pardubice was founded in March 1975 as a regional branch of CSO working in Hradec Králové and Pardubice regions. Its mission lies mostly in organization of different activities aimed in bird conservation and research and birds‘popularization. Now, the East Bohemian Branch of CSO has more than 200 members mostly from East Bohemia but also from other parts of the Czech Republic.


Main regular activities are:
