ASC 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.
Weekend Field Trips
Explore Oregon from its Pacific Ocean shores to the lofty mountains on its eastern border. ASC schedules ten weekend birding trips all across this marvelous state. “Weekend” consists of either three days - Friday through Sunday - or four days - Thursday through Sunday. Comfortable vans supply transportation. We stay in comfortable motels and lodges and eat at some excellent restaurants. All ASC members and prospective members can participate.
The trips are led by an experienced crew of good birders who take pride in their abilities to help beginners. Expenses are shared by all participants. So pick up your 2014 calendars, and mark these dates:
- August 14-17 Steens & Hart Mountains
- September 5-7 Return to Bandon for shorebirds
You can sign up by emailing Fred Ramsey at firstname.lastname@example.org. A $50 deposit per person per trip will be required.
