Event Description

Creating Bird Friendly Landscapes in the Midwest

August 4-8, 2014

Country Inn and Suites

Port Washington, Wisconsin

Come join us for a terrific five-day workshop, abounding with inspiring speakers, focused working group sessions, presentations on the latest scientific findings, educational field trips, and hands-on training opportunities!  For the first time, we are also organizing an evening social event to explore successful habitat restoration projects within an important migratory bird stopover corridor.  Registration is free, but participants will be responsible for lodging, travel, and meal costs.  

  • Present a poster or talk on research, monitoring, management, and/or education efforts addressing bird and habitat conservation goals.
  • Contribute to collaborative working group sessions that will explore how to coordinate and integrate monitoring into conservation and management decisions.
  • Participate in hands-on workshops on our Midwest Avian Data Center and Bird Conservation at Home.
  • Enjoy local birding, good cuisine, and great camaraderie!

We wish to thank the US Fish and Wildlife Service and Birds & Beans for sponsoring this event!
