An Event To Remember

Our heartfelt thanks go to the many volunteers, sponsors, speakers, and hundreds of enthusiastic participants (and one Kirtland's warbler) who made the 2009 Midwest Birding Symposium a rousing success! We had a great time and formed a lot of memories—we hope you did, too!

We hope you enjoyed the great birding, world-class speakers, Birder's Marketplace, and unbeatable camaraderie this year's event had to offer.

We managed to capture some of our memorable moments in photographs. Visit our gallery to see photos from the event. You may also listen to some of the speakers you may have missed, and leave your comments about the 2009 MBS.

We're already looking forward to the next symposium! Don't miss out! Mark your calendars for September 15 to 18, 2011 in Lakeside, Ohio.

What Attendees Said...
"My wife and I attended the 2009 MBS and, as novice birdwatchers, we had a fabulous time learning and sharing with the group. The speakers were top rate and the events were spaced with enough time to relax and watch the birds at Lakeside. As a person who has attended many events like this, I can say that this was a well planned, well executed and, most importantly, a fun event. We are looking forward to the next MBS at Lakeside in two years."
—Florian Kete, 2009 attendee
