Field Trips

Rob Lindsay coordinates our monthly field trips which usually take place on a Saturday. Field trips often go farther afield in the county than the Friday bird walks
Contact Rob by e-mail for additional information.

As we resume our activities, to ensure the safety of our leaders and participants, the following protocols have been adopted until further notice:

  • All participants are mandated to have been vaccinated to attend a field trip.
  • Decision to wear masks on field trips will be up to the discretion of the trip leader
  • Maintain social distancing.
  • If you are sick, or feel unwell, do not attend.
