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.

Participants must follow social distancing at all times and wear masks when requested by the leader. There will be limited sharing of scopes or other equipment. Members who wish to participate in a particular field trip must contact the listed leader by phone or email as quickly as possible. Participants are free to depart early if they wish. Members with FRS radios should bring them on out of town trips. Bus Information: 306-975-3100.
