Field Trips

Wednesday, March 12th, 8:00AM
BP Wetlands
Leader: Bob Huntington

This is a new area for us although Bob has been surveying the wetlands for a while. These wetlands are not generally open to the public so this is a special opportunity. We expect to see waterfowl and maybe some early shorebirds.
We’ll meet at 8am in the SE corner of the Shopko Parking lot in Sugarhouse for a morning of birding.
Call Bob (595-8748) if you plan to attend or for more information.

Field trips have to be planned well in advance.
Occasionally we have to cancel a trip, or location or times change.
Therefore it is important to confirm details with the leader.

Beginners and guests are always welcome on Audubon field trips.

For more information
contact Deedee O'Brien at
or Sylvia Gray at

We encourage carpooling on our field trips. Contributions towards gas money would be appreciated. For local trips, under 40 miles round trip, we suggest $3 per person and for round trips over 40 miles we suggest $5 per person.
