2021 EVENTS UPDATE: Although the news of an effective coronavirus vaccine is encouraging, it looks like it will still be some months before the spread of the virus slows down. With the pandemic still surging, our Board of Directors has decided that we will continue to limit hosted in-person activities this year (at least for the first few months) to ensure the health and safety of our members and volunteers. Registration will be limited and participants and volunteers will be required to observe COVID-19 safety measures including masks and social distancing for most in-person activities.
"I had a great first-time outing with the Duval Audubon Society today! I am new to birding and everyone was very helpful in identifying and spotting birds. Our hike not only taught me more about birds but also about other wildlife and plants. Looking forward to my next outing with the group!"
Our field trips are for both beginning and seasoned birders. Don't forget your drinking water, sunscreen, and mosquito repellant.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Sometimes details of our field trips may have changed after the print edition of our calendar in September. A trip could potentially have to be cancelled, meeting location changed, etc. If you plan on attending one of our field trips, ALWAYS check our Calendar of Events, our Duval Audubon Meetup group, or our Facebook page the night before for any updates.
BIRDING ETHICS FOR OUR FIELD TRIPS
Our top priority in the field is to approach birds with their health and safety in mind. Please read the American Birding Association's statement of birding ethics at ABA Birding Ethics.
Visitors and guests are always welcome.
