Loaner binoculars available upon request – please contact the leader at least 48 hours in advance. Port-a-potties should be available.

BBC field trips are open to all participants. Unless otherwise stated, all trips are free to attend and do not need preregistration. You do not need to be a club member to attend, though we hope you will join.
