Golden Gate Audubon runs free bird-watching field trips in the Bay Area and beyond. Beginners are welcome. Come join us to learn about birds as well as our conservation programs and volunteer opportunities.

Check our our field trip schedule at http://www.goldengateaudubon.org/field-trips/fieldtrips/

Golden Gate Audubon offers more than 100 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 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.

Local trips are free (with some limited exceptions), 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 volunteer@goldengateaudubon.org.

Golden Gate Audubon engages people to experience the wonder of birds and translate that wonder into action; and protect native bird populations and their habitats.

We have played leadership roles in the preservation of Arrowhead Marsh in Oakland and Audubon Canyon Ranch in Bolinas, protection of raptors at the Altamont Pass wind farm, and are currently working to protect endangered California Least Terns in Alameda and Snowy Plovers in San Francisco. Our Eco-Education program introduces 700 low-income elementary school students and their families to wildlife and ecosystems each year.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
