The Washington Ornithological Society is delighted to invite you to our Nov. 7 Monthly Meeting which will be conducted both in-person and via Zoom.  The program will begin at 7:30 pm.  (See below for attendance details)

Dr. Peter Hodum will present Of Puffins and People:  Conserving Seabirds of the Salish Sea and Outer Coast of Washington.  He will move between islands, seascapes, and species of the waters of Washington, sharing stories about a collaborative research program focused on improving our understanding of the ecology and conservation status of species such as the Tufted Puffin, Rhinoceros Auklet, Cassin’s Auklet and Leach’s and Fork-tailed Storm-Petrels.  

Dr. Hodum is a professor in the Biology Department and the Environmental Policy and Decision Making Program at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, WA, and the Chile Program Director for Oikonos Ecosystem Knowledge, a conservation non-profit organization (www.oikonos.org).  His work also has a strong focus on community-based conservation, including how communities can be more effectively and authentically involved in conservation.

Attendance Details:  WOS is excited to announce that the November 7 Monthly Meeting will be conducted as a hybrid event.  For the first time since March 2020, you may attend the meeting in either of two ways:

•   In-person, at the UW’s Center for Urban Horticulture at 3501 NE 41st St. in Seattle.  Those who have previously attended know the large size of the meeting space. Ventilation will be enhanced and seating will be spaced. The proper wearing of facial masks when indoors will be required, as a protective measure for all of us. No refreshments will be served. The doors will open at 6:30 pm.

Please join us either in person or virtually!
