Third North American Ornithological Conference -
2002 Conference - New Orleans, Louisiana
The Third North American Ornithological Conference is a joint meeting
of the American Ornithologists Union ,
Cooper Ornithological Society , the Society
of Canadian Ornithologists/Société des Ornithologistes du
Canada , the Raptor
Research Foundation , the Mexican
Ornithological Society (CIPAMEX) , and the Society
for the Conservation and Study of Caribbean Birds (SCSCB) . The quadrennial
event will be held this year in New Orleans, Louisiana, Sept. 24-28, 2002.
Now that the storm has passed, you have a tale to tell your children and grandchildren. A direct hit on New Orleans, even by an almost-hurricane, is a relatively rare event. The forecast calls for a beautiful weekend in the Big Easy, with fall-like conditions - low humidity and moderate temperatures. Major attractions will quickly reopen, and the French Quarter will be as clean as it ever gets. We will leave the weather links below for your convenience in case you have to travel to the northeast, where the storm continues to cause some problems. Thank you for your patience.
