For the first time ever, the Washington Ornithological Society (WOS) and the Oregon Birding Association (OBA) have
combined forces and will hold a joint Conference in Astoria, Oregon on September 16 – 19, 2021!

Detailed information about the Conference schedule, events, lodging, registration, meals, and field trips is available at

Conference registration opens at 8 am Pacific Standard Time on July 18. At that time a link to the registration site
(PlanetReg) will become active at both the WOS and OBA websites, letting you sign up.

To protect the health and safety of our members and the broader community, WOS and OBA are requiring all Conference
attendees to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

Evening highlights will include Dr. Dennis Paulson’s ever-popular Stump the Experts program on Friday. On Saturday, Cornell
Lab of Ornithology’s Dr. John Fitzpatrick will deliver the Conference Keynote Presentation, “Wild Birds Are Now the Canaries,
and Our Planet Is the Coal Mine.”

Registration is open now for pelagic trips out of Ilwaco on Saturday, Sept. 18 and Sunday, Sept. 19. Oregon Pelagic Tours is
offering these trips in coordination with the Conference. Look for details about these trips by date and refer to their
instructions on the “Schedule and Prices” and “Reservations” tabs of the Oregon Pelagic Tours website --

We hope you can attend the Conference!
