Block out November 4-8 for the 2015 Raptor Research Foundation conference in Sacramento – the fiftieth anniversary of the ground-breaking 1965 Peregrine Falcon meeting in Madison. Sacramento, CA is easy to get to, with proximity to the diverse Central California coast, the Sierra Foothills, the Central Valley, and much more. Sessions will be held at the Doubletree Hotel, a rock’s throw from the raptor-rich American River Parkway. Hosting the conference is the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory (GGRO), celebrating 30 years of raptor migration monitoring in the Marin Headlands.

The 2015 conference will feature a symposium on Golden Eagle conservation. Other anticipated symposia may include Strix owl conservation, rodenticide effects, raptor health and diseases, and mitigating energy impacts on birds of prey. Field trips are expected to the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory migration site in the Marin Headlands, to the Sacramento Valley National Wildlife Refuge complex, to Altamont Pass Wind Region, and to the California Raptor Center at UC Davis.

For suggestions of symposia and events, and to offer ideas or support, please contact conference chair Allen Fish, afish@parksconservancy.org.
