The HBC offers same-day (local) field trips to spots easily reached and explored in one day, as well as overnight trips to locations further afield.
Field Trip Guidelines
The number of participants for each field trip are determined by the field trip leader and are open to non-members.
Overnight trips extend over at least one (1) night. All are limited to members of the Hampshire Bird Club.
Registration: Contact the Field Trip Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Costs: We recommend car-pooling and cost sharing which can be arranged between participants (not by the leader or the club). (See also Field Trip Guidelines.) The HBC charges a fee which includes a share of club insurance premiums, and a share of the leader/s costs. The club may also charge for a share of other costs, if the club pays these on behalf of participants.
Birding for Everyone
The Birding For Everyone (BFE) program is geared towards beginner birders and those who, historically, have not been included in the birding community: young people, minorities, and persons with disabilities. Each month there will be a one hour online educational session (15 minute presentation, 45 minutes for questions, bird ID help, etc.) and a two hour, in-person, beginner bird walk at an accessible location. The online sessions will take place on the third Saturday of the month at 10:00 a.m.; the in-person walks will occur on the fourth Saturday of the month at 8:00 a.m. Interested? Have questions? Would your group benefit from this program? Email derek allard for any of the above.
