About

The Willamette Valley Bird Symposium is a day-long event bringing together professionals, students, and amateurs to celebrate birds. Learn about our logo.

Recognizing that we can all be instrumental in advancing the scientific understanding of birds and their conservation, the symposium provides an opportunity for valuable conversations among bird enthusiasts of all ages and backgrounds. Typical offerings include student research presentations, demonstrations of avian research techniques, networking opportunities, and a live raptor exhibit from a local wildlife rehabilitation center.

The symposium began in 2015 and was an overwhelming success with more than 200 registrants each year it has been held. Watch the video below to learn more.
