ALL SPRING ENSBC FIELD TRIPS ARE CANCELLED. WATCH THE WEBSITE FOR FURTHER ANNOUNCEMENTS IN THE FALL.
Field trips sponsored by the Evanston North Shore Bird Club are open to everyone. Beginners are encouraged on all ENSBC field trips. What's more, all local field trips are FREE! Car pooling is encouraged on all field trips. Always check the website for possible changes in dates, times, locations, leaders, etc. Contact the individual leader or the Field Trip Chair, Libby Hill at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need more details on specific trips, or are looking for someone to carpool with.
Most local trips are two-hours long and require no reservations. For trips that might be half-day, all day or even over a weekend. reservations with the leader are required. If you have an idea for a possible future trip, or would like to lead a future trip, please contact email@example.com.
Most of the locations of field trips are on level, well drained ground, but a few take you to some muddy areas, or it may have recently rained and the trails may be waterlogged. A successful birding trip is a well planned trip; please bring along boots and rain gear as necessary, as well as snacks and water or something to drink to make every outing an enjoyable one. A final tip to good Chicagoland birding: a reliable local map is indispensable, whether an actual map or on your iphone.
Carpooling is strongly recommended on ENSBC field trips.
