Please join Western Field Ornithologists (WFO) for their annual conference, to be held this year in bird-rich Ventura, California, Sept. 26-30. As you may know, WFO partners with CFO in promoting interest in birds and ornithology here in Colorado and throughout the West.
WFO conferences are much like CFO conferences, with workshops, socials, science sessions, and, of course, field trips. In recent years, WFO has made magnificent strides toward emphasizing participation by and contributions from teenage field ornithologists. If you were at the 2017 WFO conference in Pueblo, you will recall that the event was absolutely teeming with young birders--including a sizable contingent from Colorado. On that note, I'm pleased to report that two Colorado young birders are recipients of generous scholarships to this year's WFO conference.
