45th Annual WFO Conference

Reno, Nevada | August 25–29, 2021

Each year WFO holds a multi-day conference with scientific papers, field trips, workshops, panels, a keynote address, the annual membership meeting, and other events. The location varies each year as WFO attempts to span its region of coverage while also making its conferences accessible to the bulk of its members.

45th Annual Conference


Because of the extraordinary circumstances regarding COVID-19, and the uncertainty about the course of this epidemic in the weeks and months ahead, WFO has decided to postpone our next conference to 2021. This difficult decision was made to protect the health of our members and to protect WFO from a potentially significant financial loss.

We are scheduling our next conference at the same hotel (Whitney Peak in Reno) from August 25–29, 2021. More info will follow in the months ahead.

Stay well!

Jon Dunn 
President, WFO
