Upcoming Field Trips
2014 (Sat). 7am-late afternoon/early evening.
Daggett and/or Cache counties. Led by Keeli Marvel. I still need
these counties for the 2014 challenge so I will be leading a long day field trip
to see if we can finish both counties. Bring a lunch and plan on being back late
afternoon/early evening. Because it is a lot of driving, if you would like to
go, please plan on splitting the cost of gas. Meet at 7:00 am at Winco
Foods, Orem 800 North exit off I-15. We'll meet at the west end of the parking
lot near the entrance.
27 September, 2014 (Sat). 7am-early afternoon.
Provo Canyon and DWR Raptor Watch Day at Squaw
Peak Orem Overlook.
We will bird the Provo Canyon area then join the DWR Raptor Watch Day event at
the Orem Overlook on Squaw Peak Trail Road. Meet at 7:00 am at Canyon View Park
(the first park on the left as you head up Provo Canyon, the park with the
roundabout). Here is a map with a marker on the spot -
11 October, 2014 (Sat).
The Big Sit, Provo Airport Dike - Led by
Eric Huish. This will be our 13th year participating in the annual Big Sit! - We
will sit in one spot out on the Provo Airport Dike all day and watch birds.
Last year we sat at the SW Corner. The precise location for this year will
be announced before the Sit. We will start at 6 a.m. Come anytime you like but
there may or may not be anyone out there between Noon and 5:00 pm, we take a
break during the slow time of the day. You can call us at 801-360-8777.
We are actively recruiting people to lead local half-day field trips, any
time, any place. If you would like to lead a field trip or if you have any
ideas for this year’s field trips, please contact Bryan Shirley at -
