2022 OFO Convention
The in-person convention is back after a 2-year hiatus!
Join OFO members and guests for three days of birding, celebration and enjoyment in Point Pelee National Park and surrounding birding destinations.
At this time of year you can expect to see migrating songbirds, waterfowl, shorebirds, and abundant raptors. Many people consider September to be the best birding month of all!
Evening activities include Friday night's Birds and Beers -- a casual dinner followed by a short presentation of local interest, and the famous Bird Quiz hosted by Sarah Rupert.
The Saturday Banquet and AGM is the heart of the convention. A sit down meal is followed by the roundup, the OFO Annual General Meeting, presentation of the Distinguished Ornithologist Award and Certificates of Appreciation, and the Keynote Speech. This year's Keynote Speaker is Merilyn Simonds, authour of Woman, Watching, a biography of Louise de Kiriline Lawrence, an early citizen scientists who retreated in midlife to a log cabin in the bush to study songbirds.
Both evening events take place at the Portuguese Club, located at 217 Talbot St., West in Leamington, Ontario. The club has ample parking and is wheelchair accessible. Evening events are preceded by vendor exhibits, and a chance to vie for one of the fabulous door prizes. A cash bar will be available at each event.
