Why should you attend?
“Kenn Kaufman knows his birds and their miraculous journeys—and he feels them deeply, too. An enlightening, thought-provoking, and poignant read.” —Jennifer Ackerman, author of The Genius of Birds
“Some people love birds, but others have a passionate commitment to birding. Kenn Kaufman has that kind of dedication, which includes a fascination for bird watching, but also he’s a genuine part of the birding community dedicated to protecting these beautiful creatures.” —Craig Newmark, founder of Craigslist
“The Field Guide to Freshwater Fishes of Virginia is one of the best fish field guides I’ve encountered. It covers all the fish in detail, but is small enough to easily fit in a pack or carry-on bag. The illustrations are beautiful and the text focuses on information most helpful for field identification.” —Matthew L. Miller, The Nature Conservancy Cool Green Science
“An extraordinarily useful and beautifully illustrated field guide to the rich and diverse fish fauna that inhabit Virginia’s streams, rivers, and lakes. A valuable contribution that, by putting more enlightened eyes in the field, will doubtless facilitate building knowledge of Virginia’s fishes going forward while keeping abreast of their dynamic nature.” —Wayne C. Starnes, former Curator of Fishes, North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences
