Saturday evening program will feature Stephen Mahfood, Director of the Mo
Dept of Natural Resources, who will speak about DNR and the birding
community.  Details below, plus look for the blue insert pages in the
forthcoming issue of the September Bluebird (the premiere issue of our
fabulous new editor Patrick Harrison...)  Also, the agenda and directions
to the park are available on the ASM website  Deadline

Vice President, ASM

Friday September 26 – Registration begins at 3:00 pm
        The Friday evening program will be presented by management level
Missouri Department of Conservation staff and will focus on management
topics of interest to birders.  This will be followed by our annual ASM
slide show in which members are invited to bring their favorite slides to
share with the group.
        Field trips will begin Saturday morning and will include a choice of
trips to Pin Oak, Brumley Hollow, Ozark caverns, airport “wetland”, or
the State Park savannah area.  No need to sign up in advance; groups will
organize according to field trip interest.
        After lunch, there will be a birding workshop. The workshop will be the
ever-popular Bill Rowe photo identification quiz.  Slides will range from
common, easy to identify birds to rare and difficult to identify birds.
After participants have made their ID, the answers will be given and an
analysis of the field marks will be presented.
        Following the bird identification workshop, several activities will be
available.  Field trips will resume or members can participate in a
round-table discussion with MDC staff members that will follow-up on
Friday evening’s presentation.
        In the evening, Stephen Mahfood, Director of the Missouri Department of
Natural Resources (DNR), will talk with us about DNR and the birding
        The annual ASM business meeting will follow.
