New Bern, North Carolina, 20-23 September 2016. The Waterbird Society will hold its 40th Annual Conference and General Meeting in New Bern, North Carolina, from 20-23 September 2016. This announcement is a call for anyone who would like to propose a Symposium or Workshop for this meeting. If you are interested, please contact Clay Green by 1 February 2016. A symposium may be a full day (~14 presentations) or half day (7 presentations). Likewise, workshops can be a full day, half day, or a couple of hours. At present, we have accepted a proposal for a Symposium and Workshop on the Biology and Conservation of Herons of the World.
Because the Waterbird Society is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2016, we are planning a celebration of the first 40 years of the Society, complete with displays of the Society’s early formative days, so please make plans to join us in New Bern.
Meeting information, including details on the New Bern Riverfront Convention Center, field trips, accommodations, and special events will be posted on the Waterbird Society web site (http://www.waterbirds.org/) in November 2015.
Daily early morning and evening birding trips will be offered, as well as longer field trips on 24 and 25 September.
Historical New Bern, a city of approximately 30,000 people, is located at the confluence of the Trent and Neuse rivers as they flow into the Pamlico Sound, bordered by the Outer Banks chain of barrier islands; it is a water wonderland! We look forward to seeing you in New Bern in 2016.
