One change to notice in the schedule is that the Rogue and
Malheur trips - which have been Friday to Sunday and Thursday
to Sunday in past years - are now Saturday to Monday and
Friday to Monday. The Rogue trip includes a play at Ashland's
Oregon Shakespeare Festival, and this will be the first time we
will see a play that was actually written by Shakespeare - the
delightful comedy Twelfth Night.
Klamath Basin is back on the schedule. But the July Wallowa
trip is gone. There is a possibility that a January or February trip
to the Wallowas might be organized on short notice.
- April 8-10 Bandon
- April 22-24 Klamath Basin
- May 6-8 Rogue Valley
- May 20-23 Malheur NWR
- June 10-12 Summer Lake
- August 11-14 Steens
- September 9-11 South Coast
These are group affairs, where we travel in rental vans from
Enterprise, lodge at interesting facilities, and share expenses.
Signup sheets will be available beginning at the January ASC
general meeting. You can also sign up by email to flramsey5@
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.
May through September

Bring a bicycle helmet, water and binoculars. We ride slowly, listen for birds and stop frequently. Trip lengths are less than 10 miles.
To ensure an optimal birding experience for all participants, this year we will be requiring registrations and limiting each trip to 12 participants. There will be waiting lists in case of cancellations. Registered participants will be notified a few days prior to each event and those on the waiting list will be notified if they may attend. There is no deadline for registration, but register early for any or all trips to ensure your spot.
