Field Trips

All are welcome to participate in field trips. Invite your friends! Carpooling for out-of-town trips is arranged at the meeting place. There are no fees unless indicated; however, participants are expected to share gasoline costs and should make arrangements with the driver to do so. Phone the trip leader if you have any questions. Participants can return early if they wish. Members with CB or FRS radios should bring them on out-of-town trips. For information on city buses, phone 306-975-3100.
