ASC Field Trips

Weekend Field Trips

Bring your binoculars and come with us! Birds are our common interest, and people at all levels of expertise join our field trips to the best local and regional birding spots. If you’re a beginner, we’ll help you find and identify birds; if you’re an experienced birdwatcher, you can lead us to a favorite place. We enjoy bats and other animals, too…and of course, people interested in plants are always welcome on our outings.

2018 Schedule

  • TBA

On these trips, we travel in rental vans, stay in motel-style accommodations, and eat meals wherever we can get them. We share all expenses.

There will be signup sheets at the Field Trip table at the ASC general meetings starting in December of this year. If there are parts of Oregon you want to add to the schedule, please consider organizing a tour. Assistance in the planning and execution is available..

Bicycle Birding

Bicycle birding is a great way to cover more ground than you can on foot. You can bird by ear while you’re riding, instead of missing them while driving a car. Get a little exercise and make your birding less fossil fuel-dependent! Led by Don Boucher and Lisa Millbank.

These field trips are usually less than 10 miles and last about 3 hours. We ride slowly, listen for birds and stop frequently.

  • 2018 TBA

It’s free but registration is required and space is limited. You’ll receive a reminder and directions to the site a few days prior to each event for which you’re registered.
