We are looking forward to this year’s presenter, George Armistead! A few words from George:

Being a birder is hard work. Sure, we see lots of beautiful things, many amazing places and are afforded a unique perspective through our favorite pastime. But as birders, we are also the subject of curiosity and bewilderment among much of the rest of society. And when people ask us what we like about birding we struggle to answer, because really what’s not to like? In 2015 authors George Armistead and Brian Sullivan published a new book titled, Better Birding: Tips Tools and Concepts for the Field (Princeton University Press), and George will discuss this book while spotlighting the birding lifestyle in an attempt to provide a greater context for birding and why we find it so rewarding.

George Armistead is chief network officer at Rockjumper Worldwide Birding Adventures, which operates over 300 tours annually. George has guided trips to all seven continents and authored two books: Better Birding: Tips, Tools, and Concepts for the Field (2015, Princeton University Press), and The ABA Field Guide to the Birds of Pennsylvania (2016, Scott & Nix, Inc.). He has a masters degree in environmental studies from the University of Pennsylvania and is an associate at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia.
