Due to insurance requirements, Sacramento Audubon leaders are not allowed to organize carpools. Participants are, however, encouraged to voluntarily share rides. Any carpool arrangements are private arrangements between the driver and the passengers. Drivers must carry adequate insurance coverage. Please be courteous and share gas expenses with the driver.
Due to the continuing coronavirus threat, SAS is not offering field trips for the month of June. It is not clear when they will be resumed, so please check the SAS website and Facebook page as they will reflect future field trips as soon as they are scheduled once again.
Field Trips are updated monthly and offer a wide variety of areas and birding experiences. Trips are listed by date and location. Each trip entry will show general information such as where to meet, departure time, and leader's name with contact phone numbers and email. All trips are scheduled by the Field Activities Committee of The Sacramento Audubon Society.
You don't need to be a member of Audubon to attend field trips. The public is encouraged to attend and become familiar with one of the fastest growing hobbies in the US. Trip leaders will help you spot birds and help you learn how to identify specific birds. If you are in a party of 5 or more, please make prior arrangements with the trip leaders.
Report rare & unusual bird sightings and or questions about birds on the Sacramento Birds Group Email List. Follow the link for instructions on how to sign up. It's easy.
