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

Join us as we celebrate 50 years since Point Blue’s founding as Point Reyes Bird Observatory! This milestone event honors you, our members and partners, for making our journey possible.

The Annual Membership Meeting and family celebration will be held at Chileno Valley Ranch, a STRAW restoration site in northern Marin County, west of Petaluma. We’ll see how the restoration has helped the Ranch sustain thriving wildlife populations. We will also learn about Point Blue’s climate-smart conservation science for birds, other wildlife and human communities!
