Service Awards were presented to Larry Allen and Bob Evans at the Annual Meeting of Western Field Ornithologists, Petaluma, California, September 29, 2012.

WFO recognizes two men with our WFO Volunteer Award.


For their many years of dedicated volunteer effort on behalf of Western Field Ornithologists, and field ornithology in the west.

Larry Allen of Los Angeles, California and Bob Evans of Benson, Arizona have been long-standing members of Western Field Ornithologists (each has been a member for over 20 years). Both men have been consistent annual WFO volunteers; sharing their time in working to make our annual conferences successful events and offering to do any job that needs doing. From stuffing registration envelopes to leading field trips and everything in between, these men have allowed themselves to be recruited year after year to fill in and work on any part of our conference that needed an extra set of hands. Lucky for us, apparently their vocabularies do not include the word "no" and we deeply appreciate their spirit in sharing their time and energy with us.

Thank you both.
