Annual Gathering in Meadville (Crawford County). Please see the information
The Earl Poole Award is presented annually to a person or persons who have
made significant contributions to Pennsylvania’s ornithology. This may be
in the form of research, volunteer efforts, publications, field work, or
any other pursuit that has increased our knowledge and understanding of the
birdlife in Pennsylvania. Nominations for the Earl Poole Award should
include the name of the person and their contributions to PA Ornithology. A
list of previous recipients can be found on the PSO website.
The Conservation Award is presented to an individual or organization that
has had a positive impact on bird conservation in Pennsylvania. The award
is most often given to an organization or individual from the area that the
Annual Meeting is being held which this year is Crawford County.
Nominations for the Conservation Award should include the name of the
organization/individual along with the contribution that the
organization/individual has made to conservation in PA. Please include the
