Golden Gate Audubon offers more than 175 field trips annually for birders of all levels. Our trips explore local areas from Golden Gate Park to the East Bay shoreline and hills, as well as such wildlife-rich destinations as California’s Central Valley and the Sierra Nevada.
We also sponsor trips to other parts of the U.S. and to international destinations, including Latin America, Africa, and Australia. Field trips are led by experienced birders who are passionate in sharing their knowledge of birds and their habitats. See our Travel with GGAS page for upcoming travel opportunities.
Local trips are free, except for any park entrance fees. Advance reservations may be necessary. It is advisable to confirm with the trip leader that a trip will take place as planned, especially if inclement weather is expected.
For questions about individual field trips, contact the leaders. If you cannot reach a leader, contact 510-843-2222 or email email@example.com.
Our free field trips are just one of the many ways that Golden Gate Audubon connects people with our local birds. For over 100 years we have been providing critical environmental education, conservation and habitat restoration (currently at 8 Bay Area sites). Our work is supported solely through the commitment of local members, volunteers, and donors. We receive no portion of National Audubon dues. If you are not currently a member, please consider joining now. You can be part of our vital community for as little as $35. It’s quick and easy to sign up on our membership page.
We hope you enjoy our field trips. We invite you to comment about any part of
our trips (leadership, venues, schedules). Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We encourage people to share rides to field trips!
GGAS Is Looking For New Field Trip Leaders
If you’re a birder and have favorite spots that you would like to share, please consider joining our cadre of volunteer field trip leaders.
It might sound a little scary (“Who me? I can’t lead a field trip.”) but it’s really fun and quite easy.
We’re planning some training walks. We’ll help you write trip descriptions and find background resources on the places you love to go birding.
And you don’t need to be able to identify every bird. You’ll be successful by organizing an enjoyable walk at an interesting location.
Need a coach? If you’d like a mentor, we’ll match you up with an experienced field trip leader.…
