Try to be on time... but if you're late, you might be able to catch up with us. We often spend a little time in the parking area looking at the birds!
Please don't bring pets. Dress for a field trip - good walking shoes, hat, sunscreen are all helpful. Don't forget your binoculars, and if you have a scope, it's especially nice to bring it on trips where we're looking at water birds.
