Stop by the American Birding Expo, and visit OOS at our booth! The American Birding Expo is a retail-sales-oriented showcase of products for birders and nature enthusiasts. Exhibitors from around the world, representing all aspects of the birding and nature market, will be there to present and offer their products, goods, and services. The Expo is the largest and most diverse shopping experience available to bird watchers in North America. It is free and open to the public, though attendees who preregister get special benefits. A portion of the proceeds from the Expo, generated by sponsorships, raffles and games, and voluntary contributions, will be earmarked for three distinct conservation projects at the local, national, and international level. Be there the Grange Audubon Center, September 16-18, 2016! – See more at: http://www.americanbirdingexpo.com/#sthash.ZHxpQaMd.dpuf. Want to volunteer to help staff the OOS table? Meet lots of new birding friends, and help a good cause. Email Julie at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details!
