Field Trips

Currently, Napa-Solano Audubon Society has a field trip or bird walk scheduled every other Friday, some Saturdays, and every other Tuesday. The bi-weekly Friday Walks tend to be a shorter outings, usually to a local birding hot spot in Napa or Solano County. Once a month from September through June, we have a monthly field trip (also on Saturday), but these are usually longer trips. Newcomers and bird watchers of all levels are most welcome! Attending a field trip is a great way to find new birding locales, learn more about birds & get to know more about us. Check out our Field Trip Schedule to see when our next trip is scheduled, and where the carpools depart. Come and join the fun!

Note: Field trip sightings are posted on our Facebook page. So, if you miss a trip, take a look at what birds were seen. You may want to to check the area on your own at a later date.

What to Bring: In general, for Saturday trips, pack a lunch, or at least bring snacks. Bring plenty of water or other liquids, and be prepared to carry your lunch and water if necessary. Itís always a good idea to wear a hat, bring sunscreen and bug repellent. Dress in layers. Donít forget your binoculars! We have binoculars available to borrow.
