South Australian Ornithological Association Inc.
c/- The South Australian Museum, North Tce ADELAIDE 5000
The aims of the Association are to promote the study and conservation of Australian birds, to record results of research into all aspects of bird life and to encourage bird watching as a leisure activity.
The Association is currently (1999) celebrating its centenary year and is the oldest ornithological organisation in Australia. A Centenary book of some 200 pages comprising edited contributions from long-standing members is expected to be published in Oct/Nov of 1999, reflecting a history of ornithology in South Australia. As well as a quarterly newsletter, the Association publishes the highly regarded scientific journal “The South Australian Ornithologist”.
The Association has approximately 500 members and general meetings, usually of 90 – 130 persons, are held on the last Friday of every month except December. Meetings usually feature a guest speaker. As well as supporting research into birds and their habitats, the Association conducts field trips on the last Sunday, middle Saturday, and third Thursday of each month. Visitors (especially beginners and potential members) are always most welcome at meetings, field trips and campouts.
Meetings are held at the Charles Hawker Conference Centre in the Waite Institute on Waite Rd, Netherby at 8.00 pm, at which details of field trips are available.
