2019 Annual Meeting

(LCRA McKinney Rough Nature Park)

Every other year the TCWS conducts a 2 day symposium for members to share research, review status and trends from the annual coastal colony census, and discuss ways to advance waterbird conservation in Texas. 

The 2019 meeting was held near Austin, TX, November 19-20 at LCRA McKinney Rough Nature Park. The symposium included  updates from partners across the coast, the Society business meeting, research presentations, and a poster session.

The Society also presented a Lifetime Achievement Award to Gene W Blacklock for outstanding vision and dedication to the conservation of the waterbirds of Texas. Dr. Blacklock was instrumental in starting the Society and our annual breeding season surveys we continue today.
