AZFO Annual Meetings:

 

 

11th Annual Meeting- Cottonwood

October 20-22, 2017

The 11th annual AZFO state meeting is heading to Cottonwood for 2017! This year’s meeting will be held at the Quality Inn, minutes from the historic downtown Cottonwood and Clarkdale. The Cottonwood and surrounding area has many birding hotspots such as Deadhorse State Park and Tavasci Marsh, Mingus Mountain and let’s not forget the underexplored areas!

The meeting will feature mini-expeditions to a handful of the under-birded locations; presentations about ongoing research on the status, behavior, and distribution of Arizona birds; a chance to put your skills to the test with an audio and visual identification contest; and opportunities to learn about how you can become more involved with AZFO.

  • Friday- mini-expeditions and social hour
  • Saturday- all day meeting, social hour and banquet with keynote speaker
