Join WFO


Join WFO
Members of WFO receive four issues per year of Western Birds, regular newsletters, discounted rates for our highly acclaimed annual conferences, and the opportunity to register for WFO-sponsored tours. Your membership dues go to support the only organization working to build a vibrant community among ornithologists and birders across western North America.

Membership in WFO is by volume of Western Birds. When you join, you will receive all four issues of Western Birds in that year's volume, if the issues are available. If you join later in the year, your membership begins immediately but you may not receive all four issues of a volume of Western Birds until the following year.

If you wish to make an additional donation, please visit our donation page.

A WFO membership makes a wonderful gift for a friend or colleague. If you are a WFO member, we gladly process GIFT MEMBERSHIPS for others, up to three per year. These are $20 for 1 year, regardless of where the donor or recipient resides. Each recipient is encouraged to renew their own membership. Consequently, we allow just one gift from a member to the same individual. $20 is a promotional rate and does not cover the costs of publishing and mailing Western Birds.

Dues and contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Membership dues may also be sent to:
