Spring Meeting in California
Mark your calendars for the Spring meeting, April 7-11, 2014. Details here!
The Fall 2013 Boise Meeting
Boise, ID, Oct 8-10, 2013 -- Very extensive notes detail the presentations and discussions that transpired. There were great presentations and discussion about bird conservation projects in Idaho, and issues that challenge bird conservation in Idaho were highlighted. There were updates on the 'WWG' Research/Monitoring Projects on high priority species (Flammulated Owls, Black Swifts, and even Olive-sided Flycatchers). And, there was a recap of the relevant portions of PIF V and brief descriptions of just a few of the proposals and project ideas that emerged from that milestone international collaboration that took place in Snowbird. And there was much more at this meeting; the creative ideas and energy generated from PIF V and amplified here come through in the notes. Read 'em, and prepare to engage. Huge thanks to Jay Carlisle, Colleen Moulton, and the Idaho Bird Conservation Partnership for hosting.
PIF V -- The Fifth International PIF Meeting - Outcomes
progress as teams develop business plans for the linked geographies, north to south, fund-raising begins, and projects emerge from the combined efforts of all who participated.
State of the Birds -- Private Lands Edition!
http://stateofthebirds.org/. This edition complements the 2011 edition focused on public lands, and that edition was the genesis of the theme for our Reno meeting, Spring 2012.
WWG went to the Lower Rio Grande!
The spring meeting (April 2-4) of WWG went a little farther east than usual, to McAllen, TX (but still west of the 100th meridian). Thanks to Mary Gustafson, Rio Grande Valley Joint Venture coordinator, for hosting and setting up logistics (and for the great field trips). See the agenda, notes, and presentations here.
