Our upcoming bird walks

Bird Walks – September

Our next bird walk is Tuesday, September 28. Contact Cathy for reservations please.

Place: Coal Creek Trail, Lafyette, off Public Road.
This is a gentle trail that follows coal creek that features beautiful wildflowers and is good for all skill levels.

Numbers: 9, due to parking spaces unless people are sharing a ride. (There are only 9 parking spaces).

BIRD WALK COVID-19 PROTOCOL We are following the same protocols for Backyard Bird Friendly Tours as for traditional bird walks. We are following all CDC COVID-19 protocols on our walks. If you are not vaccinated we require that you wear a mask. We need to keep in mind those people who are immunocompromised and children that cannot be vaccinated yet. All walks meet at the bird walk sites.

If you sign up for a walk and then can't make it, please let the coordinator know, by filling out the Register for Bird Walk Contact Cathy, so we can fill your spot.

Our bird walks (aka, field trips) are open to bird watchers of all skill levels, from beginning to advanced.

The following practices apply for all of our field trips:

  • BBC members who have made an annual family membership donation will be given first opportunity to participate on "reservations-only" field trips.
  • Those under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
  • Except for service dogs, no pets are allowed on our field trips.
  • Everyone must sign a liability waiver form for each of our field trips.
  • The liability waiver form can be found here.

    Also, don't forget to bring water, sunhat, sunscreen, bug repellant, binoculars, and guidebook or app.
