Registration in now open for the Alaska Bird Conference!

The first Alaska Bird Conference was held in 1985, in Anchorage. It grew from the often-expressed need for exchange of information among those in government, universities, non-government organizations, and the private sector who are working with Alaska’s diverse and abundant birds. The conference has been held on an approximately biannual basis ever since.

This year marks the 17th Alaska Bird Conference. The Conference regularly attracts between 150 and 200 participants reporting on their latest findings and new initiatives. By design, the conference retains a familiar and friendly atmosphere, welcoming new students and ornithologists into the fold, and providing a much-anticipated gathering for those who work with and care for Alaska’s birds.

This year’s conference is hosted by the Prince William Sound Science Center, with significant contributions from an organizing committee, scientific program committee, and awards committee. The conference will be held at the Cordova Center.
