In August of 2009 a symposium was convened at the 127th Stated Meeting of the American Ornithologist's Union in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the nationwide system of Experimental Forests and Ranges (EFRs) established by the US Forest Service in 1909. Fifteen scientists from across the United States and the Caribbean gathered to highlight research conducted at EFRs to an audience of ornithologists and citizens with an interest in bird research, to share the significance of past scientific research on EFRs, as well as the potential for future work. EFRs are places that were set aside for science. They are dedicated to long-term research, and include opportunities for controlled manipulations.
