Date: 2/26/17 9:00 am From: Wayne Petersen <wpetersen...> Subject: [MASSBIRD] Birders Meeting coming soon: Sunday, March 19
This is a reminder that Mass Audubon's 25th Birders Meeting will take place Sunday, March 19 at UMass/Boston. With the recent taste of spring weather, it's only fitting that this year's Birders Meeting theme is
Warblers: From Soundscapes to Landscapes. A variety of talented speakers will offer presentations on topics ranging from ecology and taxonomy, to warbler song and conservation. Because of their rich species diversity, warblers have much to teach us about biology and natural history, along with conservation issues facing many other species in today's changing world. The program will also feature short presentations updating and highlighting bird conservation projects currently taking place at Mass Audubon.
In addition to the speaker program, the Birders Meeting will offer attendees a variety of appealing raffle opportunities, as well as access to a number of vendors offering a fine selection of birding gear, products, and books. Lunch is included in the registration fee. Early bird registration closes on Tuesday, February 28, however it is possible to register at the regular price until March 19.
