Please join us for some fun and birding. All level birders are welcome.
Southwest Florida has some of the best birding destinations in the country. Our trips explore many of these great places and offer an opportunity to learn, share your knowledge and enthusiasm, and have fun with your neighbors who share your interests.
We host two types of walking trips (“Walk-Abouts” and “Field Trips”). Walk-abouts are often co-led by a PRAS volunteer and Naturalist from the Charlotte County Parks and Recreation Department and are usually a more local and lower impact morning walk than field trips. Field trips tend to be more of a nature adventure, and are often a greater travel distance from our ‘home’ area. People from all levels and abilities are encouraged to participate.
Walkabouts – These easy walks last about two hours and are usually close to home. They are usually on the first Tuesday of the month and typically start at 8:00 a.m.
Field Trips -These usually take place on the Saturday after the Thursday programs and are typically half day to full day trips to regional birding hot spots. We recommend bringing bag lunches along.
- Don’t forget your binoculars, walking shoes, hat, water bottle, a snack and/or lunch.
- Please contact the trip organizer or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information about the destination, meeting place, and carpools.
- If you would like to lead a trip or have a suggestion for a trip please contact us.
