    The purpose of the meeting is to:

    • bring together biologists studying breeding, staging and wintering shorebirds throughout the Western Hemisphere in one location,
    • promote information sharing on methodologies and study design among biologists working on different shorebird species,
    • to promote range-wide studies of shorebirds by fostering collaborations among biologists interested in particular species,
    • integrate science into the implementation of various shorebird conservation plans, and
    • to generate enthusiasm among the shorebird community to conduct additional studies of shorebirds in the future.

    We plan to have a lot of fun! We have several social gatherings planned, an evening poster session, a field trip to see one of the largest gatherings of migratory shorebirds on the planet, and a spectacular banquet overlooking the beautiful mountains that grace our campus. We look forward to having you join us to celebrate all things shorebird.
