Field Trips

All are welcome to join us on our field trips, which are free and open to the public. Unless otherwise noted, field trips often last through noon, so please bring a lunch. Field trips will only be canceled due to extremely bad weather. If you have a question about cancellations, contact the field trip leader. Carpooling is encouraged. For directions and information, call the field trip leaders whose phone numbers can be found in the trip descriptions.


Beginner Bird Walks
NH Audubon Seacoast Chapter will have three walks this spring. Although these walks are geared with the beginner birder in mind, birders of all levels of expertise are encouraged to participate and share their experiences. Children are gladly welcome with an adult. Participants are encouraged to bring binoculars, water, insect repellent, and sunscreen. Walks are free and open to the public.
