Red Cliffs Audubon
2016-2017 Field Trip & Meeting Schedule
For all our trips you will need to bring your lunch and snacks (cold pizza is always good) and plenty of water. Dress according to the weather and don't forget your hat, binoculars and 2-way radios. Car-pooling is always encouraged, saves gas and more important there is not enough safe parking place where we stop. A long line of cars has drawn attention by the sheriff in the past. Talking about birds with other people is half the fun.
Watch for details, more info and updates on your e-mail, at our Red Cliffs web site and in the newspaper. Field trips destinations occasionally change, especially end of year trips to areas that are susceptible to fire. It is especially important to check the monthly updates if you plan on meeting the group at any place other than St. George BLM.
Notice: Please read our liability waiver regarding future field trips. This signed form will be required for field trip participation and can be submitted to the field trip guide or a Red Cliffs Audubon representative prior to departure. Thanks for your cooperation--we appreciate it!
