Field Trip Guidelines

• If you are looking for a particular species let the leader and others know.
• Prepare for the occasion, such as proper clothing for the season, sunscreen, protection against ticks, etc.
• Bring binoculars and a field guide.
• Bring lunch and beverage if it is an all day trip.
• The club encourages carpooling. Be prepared to share expenses.
• Persons who smoke are asked to respect the wishes of nonsmokers in carpooling and other group    activities.
• Please remember that field trips are a group activity; quiet groups see more birds and members who walk ahead of the group flush the birds before others can see them.
• The club encourages all members to protect birds and their habitats while birding.
• Children are welcome on club trips, but they must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who is    responsible for their behavior and well being.
• Pets are not allowed on club trips.
