All October and November field trips are full. Please register for a wait list using the link below.

New field trip offerings are published in our monthly eNewsletter that goes out on the first of each month at approximately 10:00 a.m.

FIELD TRIP LOTTERY
We have implemented a field trip sign-up lottery system to fill all field trips. The first seven days of registration are open to current Seattle Audubon members only. If spots remain after seven days, registration will be open to the public. Scroll down to learn about the lottery process.

Not a current Seattle Audubon member? Join or renew today! To check your membership status, please email Membership Services Associate, Anna Dukes.

Reminders:

    • Members may sign up for themselves and one guest for no more than two trips per month, even with the new lottery system.
    • We expect people to show up for the trips they are registered for. If you need to cancel, please get in touch so that we may fill your spot with someone from the waitlist.

Looking for an outing with no pre-registration required? Try a Neighbohood Bird Outing.

HOW THE LOTTERY WORKS
  1. New field trip offerings are published in our monthly eNewsletter that goes out on the first of each month at approximately 10:00 a.m.
  2. Select up to two field trips you can attend and sign-up (for you and an optional guest) using the registration form link.
  3. 24 hours after field trips open, we will randomly select names for each trip from the registration list.
  4. Those who win a spot on a trip will be emailed. There is no need for registrants to confirm their attendance; we have always expected registrants to attend trips for which they sign up, and that policy stands with this new system.
  5. Those who were not randomly selected for a trip will be notified via email that they are on the waitlist.
  6. In the event of a cancellation, participants will be moved off the waitlist, and onto the field trip participant list also using this same lottery system, and will be notified by email and by phone.
COVID-19 Protocol

Seattle Audubon offers both masked and mask-optional trips from which individuals can choose based on risk tolerance and comfort.

We recognize that a significant number of our community members remain vulnerable. We urge everyone in our community to remain compassionate towards one another. No one should be judged on the basis of their masking behavior or whether they choose to participate in a carpool, as long as it aligns with Seattle Audubon’s guidelines.
