BFRO Expeditions in 2014 Open to New Participants


 
2014

Note 1: All of the expeditions last four days. Most run from Thursday to Sunday -- arrive Thursday, return home Sunday.

Note 2: Typically there is only one expedition in a given state, per year, with the exception of large Pacific territories such as California and British Columbia.

Note 3: Most of the participants of BFRO expeditions are prior attendees (members and non-members) who have attended every BFRO trip in their state/province for several years. They tend to sign up quickly, which leaves fewer slots open for new people. Hence, if you're new to these expeditions, but you want to make sure you get on a certain expedition in 2014, then sign up early. If you sign up for an expedition but you cannot attend in the end, your fee becomes a credit for a future trip, or a different one already announced. Your choice. Your fee cannot be refunded if you cannot attend, but your credit will never expire.

fern cynA long weekend with the BFRO will allow you to learn what would take years to learn on your own. The BFRO has identified many potential habitat zones after collecting thousands of sighting reports for more than 15 years. The expeditions target these habitat zones.

We select territories with a history of credible sighting reports, etc. The reports you see posted on the web site are only a fraction of the information we have. They are only the first hand reports, and the ones that witnesses have allowed us to post publicly on the web site.

The expeditions are scientific in nature, but you will only understand where these efforts fall in the scientific process once you have experienced it for yourself. No other scientific efforts will happen with respect to these animals unless these expeditions happen first, because the BFRO is figuring out how these animals can be studied.

One of the purposes of these expeditions is to show people how these animals operate, so more people can help us identify other habitat areas in the US and Canada.

At this stage, many previous expedition attendees have managed to encounter these animals in other areas, after learning our techniques for identifying habitat zones and provoking an encounter there.

Mark Harrison - Roanoke, VA
