Field Trips - Come Birding With Us!
Field trips are free to Lahontan Audubon members and non-members unless otherwise noted. We encourage birders of all skill levels to participate. Trips are subject to change or cancellation so please pre-register with field trip leaders with your contact information so they can reach you in the event the trip does change and/or is cancelled. Remember to dress accordingly as the weather can be very unpredictable in Nevada, and please bring a snack and lots of water, and binoculars if you have them! Our trip registrations are limited so that everyone has a good chance to see the birds, but members get the earlybird registration links in their email.
MEETINGS & CLASSES
BIRDS OF THE TRUCKEE MEADOWS CLASSES
The popular Birds of the Truckee Meadows bird identification classes are an excellent opportunity for new birders to learn from some of the area’s experts and a great refresher for seasoned birders.
Learn how to tell a kestrel from a buteo, a sparrow from a jay, AND WHAT THE HECK ARE THE BIRDS ABOVE?
As of now, LAS is not offering its Birds of the Truckee Meadows series of bird identification classes, but classes may resume in the future.
All our Bird Class teachers are accomplished birders and a friendly group of volunteers.
Throughout the year we usually offer several workshops for the public in addition to our popular Birds of the Truckee Meadows classes. Our growing collection of bird taxidermy mounts allows us to offer programs geared to specific groups of birds. Examples include:
