Field Trips

Important Statement Regarding COVID-19 and Field Trips

During the PIAS 2020-2021 season, we will be leading a smaller number of field trips because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Our goal is to offer a series of exciting visits to good birding locations that will get people outdoors while keeping each other safe and healthy. Birding offers a wonderful means of escaping the indoors, exercising, socializing with friends at a distance and contributing to our mental well-being.

Participants must sign up for trips on our website so we may limit the number of people. Following CDC safety guidelines, masks will be required and physical distancing observed when necessary, for example, on crowded boardwalks and trails. In the past, we have encouraged carpooling to trip locations, but will not do so this year. We will not share binoculars or spotting scopes, so please bring your own equipment. By following these few simple steps, we can enjoy nature together and maintain our health.
