On behalf of everyone at Raptor Research Foundation and Hawks Aloft, Inc., we extend a warm greeting and invite you to join us at the 2023 annual conference in Albuquerque, NM. After more than 20 years, we are thrilled to welcome everyone back to the Southwest, this time in the beautiful state of New Mexico, for this year’s international conference. Both ancient and cutting-edge, equal parts cool and quaint, Albuquerque is an oasis in the high desert full of people with rich histories and cultures. Recognized as one of the most culturally diverse cities in the country, Albuquerque’s ethnic tapestry is reflected in its architecture, artwork, cultural centers, and cuisine. And with spectacular weather and a myriad of outdoor activities, Albuquerque has something to experience for adventurers of all types. To learn more, go here https://www.newmexico.org/plan/.
Home to two national parks (Carlsbad Caverns, White Sands), two national historical parks (Chaco Culture, Pecos), one national heritage area (Northern Rio Grande) and 11 national monuments, New Mexico represents the best of the southern Rocky Mountains and the Desert Southwest. More than 38 million people visit the state each year to enjoy easy access to all types of outdoor recreation, rich cultural history, and of course, our famous cuisine featuring red and green chili. You can have either/or, or if you want both just ask for ‘Christmas!’
If this is your first time visiting New Mexico, we are eager to welcome you and help you plan your return trip (we know you’ll want to return). For those familiar with the area, we look forward to helping you experience something new through the off-site events and field trips we have planned, so don’t forget to register for an excursion. Shuttle service will be provided for everyone attending off-site events and field trips.
RRF ALBUQUERQUE 2023 INTENDS TO BE AS GREEN AND ECO-FRIENDLY AS POSSIBLE.
We look forward to seeing you this fall!
