Augusta-Aiken Audubon’s field trips are open at no charge to all chapter members and the public. We encourage everyone to come out and join us! Some tips to make the trips more comfortable: bring a hat, sunscreen, insect repellent, and drinking water. Sturdy walking shoes are recommended as is having raingear nearby.
Morning trips in fall and in spring usually begin at 8 a.m. and end around noon. Winter trips usually begin at 9:00 am and end around noon. Summer field trips during the hot weather usually begin at 8 am and end around 11 am. Check the website for field trips that begin at different times.
For many of our fieldtrips we meet at Popeye’s Resturant at the corner of Walton Way and the Gordon Highway (Hwy 1) in downtown Augusta.
Another site for field trips is the Phinizy Swamp Nature Park. Directions to the park can be found on the Southeastern Natural Sciences Academy website at www.phinizyswamp.org .
The Brick Pond Park in North Augusta is another favorite fieldtrip venue.
