Midwest Bird Conservation Community to Focus on Monitoring
and Making Bird-Friendly Decisions at August Workshop

Come join the Midwest Coordinated Bird Monitoring Partnership 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! 

The Creating Bird Friendly Landscapes in the Midwest workshop will be held in Port Washington, Wisconsin, August 4-8, at the Country Inn and Suites, and you’re invited. 
Registration is free, but participants will be responsible for lodging, travel, and meal costs.  

The workshop will feature:

  • Talks on research, monitoring, management, and education efforts addressing Midwest bird and habitat conservation goals.
  • Collaborative working group sessions exploring how to coordinate and integrate monitoring into conservation and management decisions.
  • Hands-on workshops on our Midwest Avian Data Center, Bird Conservation at Home, and more.

New this year: Organizers are putting together an evening social event to explore successful habitat restoration projects within an important migratory bird stopover corridor.  Enjoy local birding, good cuisine, and great camaraderie!

Thanks to the many volunteers who stepped forward to help plan working group sessions and workshops, lead field trips, and assist with logistics for the workshop and social event.  We couldn't do this without you!
