WSO holds an annual convention that typically features half- and full-day birding field trips, presentations, skills workshops and a banquet dinner with a featured speaker. The location of the convention differs each year in order to highlight the rich bird diversity of our state.
For just the sixth time in its history, WSO will be holding its annual convention in June. Our 78th annual convention will run June 16-19, 2017 – over Father’s Day weekend -- at the Potawatomi Carter Casino and Hotel. The hotel is within the Nicolet National Forest just south of Wabeno on the southern edge of Forest County.
The hotel has offered WSO a large room block hold at a discounted price of $83 per night plus tax for a Standard King or Double. Call 800-487-9522 and mention WSO. The hotel has a large indoor pool, and free camping with electrical hookups in its parking lot on a first-come, first-served basis. Rooms are reserved for WSO members from Friday, June 16, through Monday, June 19, but it’s first-come, first-served and all rooms will be released on May 16. There is no free breakfast, but each room does come with a microwave, refrigerator and coffee pot.
