Field Outings

  • The Club holds field outings most weekends, and there are presently two mid-week outings each month. Field trips range from a half-day’s birding at local sites and to campouts. Accommodation on overnight trips varies from camping to motels. If you’re joining a field outing make sure you:
  • read the newsletter for further details and contact details of the leader.
  • bring something for morning tea and lunch.
