Field Trips

Field trips are open to anyone interested in birding, wildlife watching, photography and/or exploring Florida’s natural areas. Check the website for details, but in general bring water, hat, sunscreen, binoculars, and dress for the weather. Some trips are all day. You may need to bring lunch, etc. We often carpool, especially on the longer trips.  Gas money for the drivers is appreciated.
