Golden Gate Audubon offers more than 175 annual field trips 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.
Local field 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. Go to our Upcoming Field Trips page for a list of current field trips. Reports of past field trips can be found here.
We also sponsor trips to other parts of the U.S. and to international destinations, including Latin America, Africa, and Australia. National and international trips are led by experienced birders who are passionate in sharing their knowledge of birds and their habitats. See our Travel with GGAS 2020 for upcoming travel opportunities.
Our trips are just one of the many ways that Golden Gate Audubon connects people with 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.
