Saturday, May 21, 2016:  8am-12pm - The UCB is partnering with Payson City to host a field trip to a new park in Payson called Hollow Park. They would like to know what birds can be seen in the park so we will bird the park and report our field trip lists back to them. Meet at Hollow Park, 400 E 800 S in Payson at 8am. For those coming from the north end of the county, contact Keeli marvel at 801-602-9566 to arrange to carpool. If we get done birding at the park early enough we will also continue the field trip in the surrounding area.

Monday, May 23, 2016: Utah County Hotspots - 8:30 am - led by Suzi Holt - We will meet in the usual place at the Payson Walmart close to the big sign. It will be a fun day. Last Monday Suzi led the Utah County Hotspots for the Salt Lake Bird Festival and we were able to see 92 species. Please bring a lunch and water. It should be a fun day!  Suzi Holt - (385) 329-2002

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 - [email protected]
