Field Trips

Below is a list of our monthly birdwatching field trips and other events. All trips are free, open to the public and we have a limited number of spare binoculars available for use. Trips typically last about two hours unless otherwise noted.

As always, please be mindful of weather conditions, dress and hydrate appropriately, and use caution when traveling to new or unfamiliar birding locations.
