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.

Details of programs and field trips are at https://www.meetup.com/WestVolusiaAudubon/ and are subject to change, sometimes at the last minute. We will update the website as soon as we are aware of changes, but call Eli Schaperow at 407-314-7965, if there is any doubt.*Requires reservations – Contact Eli Schaperow at 407-314-7965
