Field Trips

Redbud Audubon field trips in Lake County and the North Bay, plus other upcoming events for the 2019/2020 Season

New Information as of January 2020 on Field Trips and ride sharing

Due to insurance requirements, Redbud Audubon leaders are no longer organizing carpools for out-of-county or distant field trips. However, participants can voluntarily share rides. Any carpool arrangements are private arrangements between the driver and the passengers.  By arriving at least 10 minutes early at the specified meeting place for distant field trips any necessary travel arrangements can be made.  Drivers should carry adequate insurance coverage. It is also appreciated to offer to share gas expenses with the driver.

General Information for All Events

The field trips are open to the public and suitable for all levels of interest. Most field trips are free unless noted.  Bring your binoculars, field guide, bird apps, and water; wear layered clothing, hats, and sun protection. Sturdy walking shoes or hiking boots recommended. Heavy rain cancels the walks unless otherwise indicated. Prior notification of attendance is not required. Participants of all experience levels are welcome and may join or leave the group at any time during the day.

Outings start at 9 a.m. unless otherwise noted.
