The end of 2019 means that we’re coming to the end of the ABA’s 50th, looking forward to the our next 50. Any big milestone encourages taking stock of where you’ve been, where you’re going. And here at the ABA we’ve been doing a lot of that internally, and in our various publications this year. But to sort of close the book on these 50 years we bring you a conversation about the ABA at 50 and beyond with a couple people listeners to the podcast are no doubt familiar with. ABA President Jeff Gordon and Birding editor Ted Floyd join me to talk about the past, the present, and the future of birding and the ABA.

We’re in the middle of our and of year appeal, and if you’re able to make a donation to the ABA and this podcast, we appreciate any support you can offer.

Happy holidays and Happy New Year list to you all!
