Each year, Point Blue conducts a meeting of its membership to celebrate the year's accomplishments.

Please join us as we honor you and all members, partners, and friends who have helped make possible another year of conservation science for a healthy blue planet!

Point Blue’s Annual Membership Meeting and Celebration will be held on Sunday, May 22, 2016 at Point Blue headquarters alongside Petaluma’s picturesque Shollenberger Park.

Enjoy delicious wood-fired pizza and a unique opportunity to connect one-on-one with Point Blue scientists. Hear first hand the good news of the climate-smart outcomes we are achieving now and into the years ahead, for the benefit of birds, wildlife and people!
