 Plan to Attend Pathbreaking WOS/OBA Conference in Astoria This Fall!
Our next conference will be in Astoria together with the Oregon Birding Association (OBA), Sept. 10-14, 2020. Preliminary information is now available on this website for the Current Year Conference. Because of uncertainty surrounding the Coronavirus, the beginning of registration has been moved to Sunday July 12, beginning at 8:00 a.m. A decision about whether to proceed with the conference will be made about June 1.
