Until further notice, our WOS Monthly Meetings are being held online only. There will be no in-person meetings.
WOS Monthly Meeting December 2020
Olivia Sanderfoot on “Canary in a Coal Mine , Revisited: Emerging evidence of air pollution as an overlooked threat to birds.”
Monday, December 7, 2020 7:30 p.m. (PDT)
(Note: 7:15 p.m. GoToMeeting sign-in; meeting begins at 7:30 p.m.)
Between COVID-19 lockdowns and ongoing wildfires, air pollution in the Pacific Northwest has looked a bit different in 2020. How are birds impacted by air pollution, and how might they respond to changes in air quality in a year like no other? In this timely talk, Olivia Sanderfoot will cover the basics of avian respiration and provide insights into the impact of smoke and other air pollutants on birds. Olivia is a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow and is currently completing her Ph.D. at the UW in the Quantitative Ecology Lab.

As we have since the start of these challenging times, WOS invites all to join via GoToMeeting (GTM). If you are not a WOS member, please consider joining today at WOS membership.
WOS Meetings [when in-person meetings resume post-pandemic] are free and open to all. They are held the first Monday of each month, October through June, at the Center for Urban Horticulture on the University of Washington campus, 3501 NE 41st St. in Seattle. Doors open at 7:00 PM for socializing and the program begins at 7:30 PM.
Are you a WOS member who lives outside the Seattle area, or are you traveling? Live videoconferencing to our monthly meetings is a benefit to membership in WOS. You can attend these meetings remotely using GoToMeeting (GTM). At meeting time, using your computer, tablet or smartphone, simply follow the GTM link provided in the meeting announcement email (sent the week beforehand to WOS members).
It is necessary to download the GoToMeeting app once in order to join meetings. For those who may already have the GTM app installed, you will need that meeting’s Access Code (unique to each meeting), which is also included in the meeting announcement email.
You can also dial in using your phone (audio only: the experience will be far less satisfying).

Note: Another way to attend the meeting is to visit the GoToMeeting website, click on “Join” in small print in the upper right corner of the page, then enter the Meeting Access Code in the oval box and click on the Join button.
Using GoToMeeting as described above should be trouble free, but in case of problems, you may wish to consult the GoToMeeting User Help Guide. It is available either for Windows or for Mac. GoToMeeting does not provide a desktop app for users of the Linux operating system, but those users can join meetings by using a webapp through the browser. See more information on this method at this GoToMeeting web page.
