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 threat of Covid-19, SAS is cancelling all March and April field trips. Since the status of this threat is changing so rapidly, a decision will not be made about May trips at this time. Please consult the May Observer and the website and Facebook for clarification regarding the status of those field trips.
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.
