Event description

Description

The Wyncote Audubon Society established the Annual Dinner in 1988. It was created as an opportunity for members to enjoy an evening together in a social setting, hear a program presented by an outstanding speaker, and as an opportunity to recognize individuals who have made meaningful contributions to conservation. This year we will observe the 31st Wyncote Audubon Society Annual Dinner! Join the fun!

Keynote Address
“The Enigma of Bird Behavior”

John Kricher taught college-level ecology and ornithology for 48 years, has led many birding tours, and has lectured widely. His quest to watch birds has taken him over 30 countries and to all of the continents. He is a fellow in the American Ornithological Society and past-president of both the Wilson Ornithological Society and the
Association of Field Ornithologists. John has also been an instructor at the Hog Island Audubon Camp in Maine. He has authored several books, most notably A Field Guide to Eastern Forests (Houghton Mifflin) and The New Neotropical Companion (Princeton University Press). His most recent book is Peterson Reference Guide to Bird
Behavior, to be published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt in the spring of 2020. He lives with his wife, Martha Vaughan, in Hingham, Massachusetts.

John Dornan Conservation Award: John Kricher will be honored with the presentation of the John Dornan Conservation Award. This award recognizes individuals or organizations that have made a major contribution to conservation in our region. John has been devoted to the enjoyment and study of birds since he received his first bird book, The Golden Nature Guide to Birds, at a very tender age. His interest in birding and ornithology took focus when he joined the Wyncote Bird Club in 1959 and spent many hours at Briar Bush, then home of Florence Griscom, who was his first mentor. He served for several years as secretary of the Wyncote Bird Club and was a Griscom Scholar.

William Dutcher Award: Jane Clarkson Henderson will be honored with the presentation of the National Audubon Society’s William Dutcher Award. This award is given to recognize individuals who have made outstanding contributions as leaders of a chapter of the National Audubon Society. Jane has had a long association with Wyncote Audubon, both as a Board member and an Officer. She served as President for nine years

and has served as the Program Chair for many years, faithfully creating the line- up of monthly programs each and every year. The Wyncote Audubon annual field trip schedule prominently featured Jane’s September visits to local Chimney Swift roosts and her spring and fall bird walks at Fort Washington State Park. Jane’s leadership and countless hours of service have earned her this well-deserved recognition and very special award from the National Audubon Society.
