Field Trips

Field trips are usually scheduled for the Saturday following the first Sunday of each month. There are exceptions, so please check the dates!   As in most years, there are no field trips in August and December.

If you plan to attend a field trip, please inform the leader at least three days before the expedition, except for the trips to Shark Tooth Hill, and for those, you need to RSVP two weeks in advance.
