Beginners are welcome on all field trips. Light drizzle does not necessarily cancel trips, but heavier rain will. If in doubt, please call the trip leader. For all trips, please wear appropriate clothing (layers are suggested), comfortable shoes, and bring snacks, water, hats, sunscreen, binoculars and field guides
A few reminders about birding etiquette: Stay behind the leader, move quietly, ask questions, listen to what people are pointing out. When socializing, stay behind the group. If you have any questions you may contact me here!
After much discussion and work developing safety protocols, we have decided to bring back birding field trips in September. In order to balance birding with safety, we will be implementing a number of COVID safety procedures that will limit the number of trips and attendees, and ensure distancing.
We are limiting trips to 4 people per 1 leader
