Date for the 2024 event will be May 23-25, 2024
Ashland, Wisconsin

2024 Keynote Speaker will be Tiffany Kersten “Birdie Big Year: Elevating Women Birders”.

Tiffany Kersten’s career path took her across the country, and her love of birds came with her. She researched honeycreepers in Hawaii, performed bird surveys at Whittlesey Creek National Wildlife Refuge in Wisconsin, served as a field naturalist for Cape May Bird Observatory, worked for New Jersey and Massachusetts Audubon, and was a Visitor Services Specialist at Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in New Jersey and at Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge in south Texas. With Kersten’s passion for wildlife and her desire to represent women in competitive birding, her goal was going for the 2021 Big Year world record travelling to the lower 48 states and tallying 726 birds.
