Join us in Sacramento in 2015!


Conference host: Golden Gate Raptor Observatory


Block out November 4-8 for the 2015 Raptor Research Foundation conference in Sacramento, California – the fiftieth anniversary of the ground-breaking Madison Peregrine Falcon symposium. Sacramento 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 raptor health and diseases, climate change issues, wind energy and raptors, and island raptor ecology. Field trips are expected to the Altamont Pass Wind Region, the California Raptor Center at UC Davis, and local raptor hot spots: the Cosumnes River Reserve, and the Solano Grasslands.

The 2015 scientific program schedule is now available online. The full abstract book and program is also available as a pdf.

For suggestions of events or donors, and to offer ideas or support, please contact conference chair Allen Fish,
