WFO Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement

The mission of Western Field Ornithologists is to promote the study, appreciation, and protection of birds in western North America. To reach the goals of this mission, we welcome all who want to learn and share learning about western birds--their identification and science, where to find them, and habitats to be protected. By striving to assemble a board of directors and membership that are as diverse as the population of western North America, we recognize the need to be more inclusive. We are committed to providing opportunities for people of all backgrounds, to encouraging and supporting their involvement in our programs and activities, and to valuing and respecting their varied contributions to WFO.
