  Field Trips & Meetings
  • General Meeting:   Wednesday, June 14, 2017 Joseph Platt will give a presentation on "Raptors in Zion." The public is welcome.  If you have questions, call 435 673-0996.  (Tonaquint map)
  • Field Trip: Saturday, June 10 - (Note the change in the date) - Our field trip is to the Central/Dixie Deer Estates area at the home of Dale and Judy Pettit.  They have water features in their uniquely designed bird-friendly yard.  In addition, the high valleys around Central are usually home to many raptors during June. We will leave the BLM at 7:00 am and will meet up with birders coming from different directions at the Central firehouse (between 7:30 am and 7:45 am.) From there we will travel to the Pettit's home.  (BLM map)
  • Meetings are always the second Wednesday of each month. There will be refreshments after all of our meetings if you want to ask questions or gab a little about birds.
  • We will have a field trip every month this year with the exception of August and December. Plan for your next outing by visiting our field trip schedule page.
