Field Trips

All CSAS trips are open to the public, and beginning birders, including children, are welcome on day trips. Bring drinking water and a lunch or snacks. Suggested apparel: Muted colors in clothing and hats; sturdy shoes, a sun hat and sunscreen, and insect repellent are advisable for all trips. Dress layered, particularly in winter months. Carry water and snacks. Bring binoculars, spotting scopes and birding field guides if you have them and insect repellent and sunscreen if needed.
NOTE: Heavy rain cancels field trips. If in doubt, call the trip leader by one hour before the meeting time.

Upcoming Field Trips

August 1 — G C S D Walk

The first Wednesday of the month Bird Walk at the Groveland Community Services District property at 18966 Ferretti Road, Groveland will be led by Jean Ridgley on August 1  at 8:00 AM. The property encompasses an area of more than 200 acres of oak, pine and willow habitat with three water storage ponds.
On July 4 we saw 35 species including Pied-billed Grebe and Bullock’s Oriole and two families of Wood Ducks were seen on the large sewer pond. A Gray Fox was also seen.
Birders who wish to bird at GCSD must be accompanied by an authorized birder and have signed an Agreement and Release from Liability. Please meet the group in the GCSD parking lot at 8:00 AM. Bring binoculars and a birding field guide if you have one. Rain will cancel the trip. The walk will last about two to three hours. If you have any questions, call Jeanne at 962-7598 or email Jeanne.
