To prepare for your birding session, please consider the following:

  1. Please dress appropriately for the weather and wear sturdy, close-toed shoes.
  2. We will be hiking slowly for a few kilometers over the course of 2-3 hours.
  3. Please bring a water bottle, and snacks in case you get hungry.
  4. Binoculars are a must, but if you don’t have a good pair, we can lend you a pair for the outing.
  5. Although we love animals, please leave your pets at home.
  6. To protect our natural ecosystems, we ask you to stay on the trails and refrain from feeding the wildlife.
