Breakfast is included.

The Saturday night reception and program will be held at the Green Door Gourmet, 7007 River Road Pike, Nashville, 37209. https://www.greendoorgourmet.com This farm-to-table venue has ties to TOS, as it is the home of Albert Ganier III and his wife, Sylvia, grandchildren of one of the TOS founders, Albert Ganier Sr.  Happy Hour will be from 4:30-6 pm with a cash bar. You will be able to browse and shop at the Green Door’s farm store and enjoy historical displays. Dinner will be at 6pm followed by our keynote speaker.

Our speaker for the Saturday banquet will be Noah Strycker. https://noahstrycker.com  Noah is an ornithologist, 2004 ABA Young Birder of the Year, and global Big Year adventurer. His 2017 book, Birding Without Borders is a personal account of his epic quest in 2015 to see more than half of the planet’s bird species in a single year. We will have a limited number books available at the banquet for purchase, or you may bring your previously purchased copy for Noah to sign. We also look forward to birding with Noah on our field trips throughout the weekend.

Field Trips are still being finalized but will include the Green Door Farm property along the Cumberland, directly across the river from Bells Bend Park. Nearby birding hot spots Beaman Park and The Cumberland River Bicentennial Trail will most likely be on the menu as well.
