In the Field: Where & When
- The 2019-2020 Field Trip season has completed. Join us next year!
In the Field: Monthly @ Boyd Hill
SPAS invites you to join us for a guided bird walk on the first Saturday of each month at Boyd Hill Nature Preserve.
This is a great walk for beginners - fun and accessible birds, well-marked trails, and a raptor aviary - and one that frequently provides a surprise or two for more experienced birders.
Regular participants are encouraged to bring along a friend who might not otherwise get out or go birding.
No walk is scheduled in February. Join us for Raptor Fest at the preserve!
