Golden Eagles 

 The Golden Eagles is a sub-group of Saskatoon Nature Society. Most of us are ‘seniors’ but we invite anyone interested in birds and the many aspects of our natural, cultural and historic heritage to join our field trips. Participants should be members of the Saskatoon Nature Society and consider membership in Nature Saskatchewan, our provincial affiliate. Contact the trip leader for more information.  

We meet each Thursday morning from April to October, and once a month from November to March. For out-of-town trips we generally carpool, meeting first at Churchill Shopping Centre, Taylor St. and Clarence Ave. Participants are expected to share gasoline costs and should make arrangements with the driver to do so. Unless indicated, there is no other charge. If a trip involves a guided tour of a facility, participants may be asked to make a donation to the facility. 

Bring lunch, drinks and chairs, unless otherwise noted. Members with CB or FRS radios should bring them on out-of-town trips. 

Participants can depart early, if they wish. Phone the trip leader if you have any questions. Dress for the weather.
