Field Trips

In addition to our free field trips, during April and early May we have many other field trip options on the Bird-A-Thon page that help support the work of Travis Audubon. Many of the teams are lead by our field trip leaders and our instructors and ask for a small donation. Check this link to learn more and register!

Membership is not required, beginners are welcome and most field trips are free!
If you enjoy our field trips, please consider joining Travis Audubon.

Policies

 

Course Registration

To register for any Travis Audubon field trip, follow the directions in the field trip descriptions. If the field trip is full, contact the registrar to be put on the waiting list. If a vacancy occurs before the field trip, the next person on the waiting list will be contacted. This waiting list does not roll over to the following year.

Course Refund and Withdrawal

To withdraw from a field trip, please contact the registrar. If a registrant withdraws from a field trip at least 7 days before the 1st session, Travis Audubon Society (TAS) will offer a full refund less a $5 administrative fee that helps defray our costs. If the registrant withdraws less than 7 days before the 1st session, no refund will be made. If TAS cancels the field trip, we will fully refund the tuition. Payment for a field trip is due at the time of registration. If payment is not received within a week of registration, the student may be dropped from the roster.
