Save the Date! J. Drew Lanham to Give OBA Annual Meeting Keynote on September 12, 2020
Oregon Birding Association (OBA) and Washington Ornithological Society (WOS) are thrilled to announce the keynote speaker for our joint virtual 2020 annual meeting. We are fortunate to have engaged master teacher, birder and writer Dr. J. Drew Lanham, Distinguished Professor of Wildlife Ecology at Clemson University. A former American Birding Association (ABA) Board member, Lanham has written for many publications including Orion and Audubon magazines and The New York Times, and is a published poet. His book The Home Place: Memoirs of a Colored Man’s Love Affair with Nature won the 2017 Southern Book Prize. His research focuses on songbird ecology, as well as the African-American role in natural resources conservation. J. Drew Lanham was interviewed by OBA member Noah Stryker for the April 2020 issue of Birding magazine.
This keynote talk and the OBA annual business meeting will take place virtually on the evening of September 12, 2020. There will be no charge. Information on time and how to join the meeting will be sent to OBA and WOS members. Now is the time to join or to renew your membership, so you will not miss the chance to hear J. Drew Lanham speak!
