FIELD TRIP RECOMMENDATIONS

Our mountain weather can be unpredictable. Even on a hot sunny day the weather conditions can change quickly. Please be 'wings weather wise' when attending field trips. We also recommend wearing sturdy walking shoes. Bring water, snacks or lunch. A camera and binoculars can enhance your experience!
