Field Trips

The following is a list of field trips through May 2018; it includes both regular and weekender trips. Due to the destruction along the Gulf coast and inland areas by Hurricane Harvey, we are holding a series of Weekender Fundraising Trips to help restore bird habitats that were lost to this devastating storm. These trips are open to all OG and TOS members. Non-members are also welcome for an additional $10.
