- Winter Wildlife Field Day 2018
Save the date for the fourth annual Winter Wildlife Field
Day at Finley on Saturday, March 10, 2018! Planning has
already begun and volunteers are invited to join the dynamic
team who will put this big day together over the next five
months. Many more volunteers will be needed for the big
event in March. Last year drew 450 participants, so we are
gearing up for another great response from our community.

(on back of CHAT) to volunteer.
2017 Speaker Schedule
- Oct. 19
Chris Mathews presents “Growing Up with a Famous Ornithologist”
“Most birders, when asked to name the top ornithologist of the twentieth century, would say Roger Tory Peterson. Yet I have been told by several that they consider my grandfather, Robert Cushman Murphy, among the top. From his year in South Georgia aboard the last of the sailing whaleships in 1912, through his career as Curator of Birds at the American Museum of Natural History in New York; his publication in 1935 of the two-volume Oceanic Birds of South America and his work on conservation in the 1950s with my grandmother, his life was full of adventure and achievement. I am always glad for opportunities to talk about my grandfather and his effects on my life.” Chris Mathews
Chris grew up in Olympia, Washington and earned a Ph.D. in biochemistry at UW. Chris moved to Corvallis with Kate in 1978 to join the OSU faculty after fourteen years on the faculties of Yale University and the University of Arizona. He retired from OSU in 2002 but remains professionally active. Chris and Kate have both served ASC—Kate as Education Chair, Chat editor and Vice President, and Chris for various periods as President and Vice President.
