2018 Redbud Field Trips

 
Redbud field trips are free and open to non-members as well as members. When we co-sponsor a trip and have docents from another organization, a small donation may be requested. Our trips are generally easy, as we walk slowly, pausing to view, identify, discuss, and enjoy the plant species.
 
Please RSVP in advance to participate in field trips. Ride sharing is recommended (parking at most trailheads is limited). We suggest riders share the cost of gas ($5 to the driver for < 40 miles round-trip, more if longer).
 
Bring water, lunch/snack, sun screen, hat, jacket, rain gear, and hand lens, as needed. Children are warmly welcomed, but please arm them with a whistle! No pets are allowed on Redbud field trips (service dogs are permitted).
 
We try to schedule trips when native plants are at their best, but wildflower displays vary depending upon weather patterns. A cold, long winter means later blooms, but if March is warm and dry, we’ll have early field trips. Predicted heavy rain (or snow) will cancel trip.
 
Field trips are posted on this website and the Redbud Facebook -- check often for updates. For advance email notice of trips, sign up for the Redbud Yahoo Listserv (see Redbud homepage).

If you would like to lead a field trip or know a good destination, email suggestions at least 2 weeks before the proposed date to volunteer@redbud-cnps.org. Write-ups should include: date, time, location, directions, what to bring, distance/length of time, difficulty, elevation, and what people may see.
