Houston Bird Week


Join us for our second annual AviChat!

AviChat, which takes place during Houston Bird Week, is a series of brief, informal, science talks about bird conservation and research in our region. The presentations will be followed by a networking period with the purpose of starting conversations among people who could collaborate productively to further the mission of bird and wildlife conservation in our region! This is not your normal conference – we’re keeping the slots short, with no time for questions until you can chat with the presenter over a drink!

Date: Saturday, September 24, 2022

Time: Starts at 1 PM. Program schedule to follow.

Location: Rice University

Registration: The cost to attend is $10, or $5 for students. You may also register at the door on the day of the event for $15 for the general public, or $10 for students. Fees are waived for those speaking at the event.

Call for Abstracts!

We’re currently looking for submissions to present your individual or organizational projects related to bird and/or land conservation, including both planned and completed research. Talks with a focus on the Upper Texas Coast will be given priority. Please select whether you would like to give a 5-minute lightning talk (best for planned research or research with limited data) or a 10-minute presentation (best for full, completed projects) on the form below.

The deadline to submit your abstract is close of business on September 1, 2022.
