Monthly Trips
Field trip 2 scotts

Gathering at the Blind

Once each month, join trip leader Jim Tomko for an informative and fun bird walk through one of our four sanctuaries or a variety of other locations such as the Aurora Country Club or LaDue Reservoir. Walks are leisurely and last around two hours. See individual trips for meeting time and place.  Calendar


 Breeding Bird Survey

Checking out the wetlands

This is a great opportunity to walk the sanctuaries, enjoy the out-of-doors and help the environment.

Three of our four sanctuaries are Important Bird Areas (IBA) and we keep annual records of the species and total numbers of birds found in them. Whether or not you can recognize birds by sight or sound, join our survey leaders and help out as a spotter or recorder.
