FIELD TRIPS

Whether you're new to birding or a Big-List birder, our field trips offer you the best birding  and nature locations in Southwest Florida. Better yet, you will get to meet others in our community who love birding and nature and who are engaged in environmental issues in Lee County and beyond.

Be sure to wear appropriate clothing for the weather, and be ready to take bug spray and sun screen, especially for our trips in early Fall and late spring. You may also wish to bring water, a camera, field glasses, or even a folding chair, depending on the outing.

Members and non-members / beginner to advanced birders – all are welcome!

All chapter-sponsored field trips are free; but, donations are always appreciated. Please note that the Corkscrew After Hours field trip is a Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary event, and it does require an admission fee. 

 

Parking or rental fees sometimes apply.  Below is a list of our field trips and you may RSVP as an optional courtesy.  However, do RSVP if you intend to go to the "Kayaking with the Manatees" event, as space is limited for that outing.
