Since 1992, birders from around New England have come together every March to attend Mass Audubon’s annual Birders Meeting. With the help of supportive sponsors, we have successfully brought together engaging speakers from around the country, been joined by top-notch vendors, and drawn enthusiastic participants to these daylong events.
2015 Birders Meeting
Managing for Birds: Balancing the needs of wildlife and people
March 7, 2015
We had 300 attendees (a new record) on Saturday, March 7, for the 23rd Annual Birders meeting. This was an informative and entertaining day for everyone. Thanks to the vendors, sponsors, and participants, this event provided valuable financial support for Mass Audubon’s Bird Conservation programs.
The theme – Managing for Birds – was well-implemented. Among the terrific lineup of speakers were some of our own scientific staff who shared Mass Audubon’s important and current bird conservation work in grassland, shrubland, and coastal conservation.
The concept of managing landscapes for birds is a creative and cutting edge part of modern bird conservation. Our keynote speaker was the artist, author and well-known blogger, Julie Zickefoose, who delighted us all with her experience and artistry.
Our commitment to bird conservation will always be at the center of what we do and this meeting was a wonderful opportunity to meet with others who have a similar shared purpose. Thank you all for participating and supporting our work!
