“The Art of Birding” - May 13-15 - Winston-Salem, NC

Hosted by Audubon North Carolina and Forsyth Audubon

When: May 13-15, 2016

Where: The Hawthorne Inn & Conference Center

REGISTRATION CLOSED

Please join us for this special event in the heart of North Carolina’s Piedmont Triad region, where birds–and bird lovers–of a feather will flock together in Winston-Salem, the City of Arts and Innovation.

The Audubon NC 2016 Annual Meeting will focus in on the Art of Birding. Highlighting the program will be a keynote presentation by Gary Langham, chief scientist of the National Audubon Society and the groundbreaking 2014 Audubon Birds and Climate Change Report; a presentation by Heather Hahn, Executive Director of Audubon NC and the world premiere of an inspiring short film about a very special bird.

Playing to the tremendous culture of arts appreciation, our annual meeting theme is “The Art of Birding”. This year’s meeting boasts a variety of activities that will appeal to all types of outdoor enthusiasts. We are offering birding trips to some of Forsyth County’s most beautiful birding areas, as well as to Pilot Mountain State Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Meeting participants can join an optional Audubon Ambassador training on Friday, learn all about creating a bird-friendly community and attend a conservation workshop on how to become involved in advocating for long-term protection of bird strongholds, as well as gaining information about choosing and growing bird-friendly native plants, and how to take steps to help the 2016 Bird of the Year, the Chimney Swift.
