From city parks to national parks the Young Birders field trips are a way to explore nature and birding hotspots throughout our city and the state. Young Birder field trips include day-trips and short overnights from October to June, and a longer end-of-year summer overnight trip to a further afield birding location. Our trips are often lead by Master Birders, and are a great way to get outside, learn about new birding areas, and spend time birding with other teens.
