53rd Annual Meeting in Chincoteague, Virginia

October 23-26, 2014

Join us for our Annual Meeting on October 23rd to the 26th. This year we will be adventuring to the Chincoteague Bay Field Station in Chincoteague, Virginia. This is a weekend you won’t want to miss. Participants will be able to explore the exclusive pristine Wallops Barrier Island, only accessible through the field station. Chincoteague’s barrier beaches, wetlands and maritime forest habitat protect threatened and endangered species and native plants and animals. Other field trips available are a marine science boat cruise, an organisms identification lab, and a Chincoteague island tour.There will also be discussions and demonstrations to introduce you to the wonderful coastal life of Chincoteague and presentations on the work the American Littoral Society is doing to care for the coast here.


Breakfast, lunch, and dinner is included with each night’s stay, expect for Thursday and Sunday. Thursday's dinner will be provided after check-in and Sunday's breakfast will be available before departure.


The weekend is informal, a time to catch up with old friends and meet new ones, as you
explore and learn about the coast in this special place. Don’t miss out – we always discover
something special! We look forward to seeing you.
