Saturday and Sunday guided field trips – Several field trips, on and off Ladd Marsh, will be offered.  Participants must register in advance for field trips, as space is limited.  A fee is charged to help defray our costs.  Trips include the famous Rhinehart Canyon and the Great Grey Owl nesting area at Spring Creek, or you might like to enjoy the Dawn Chorus on Ladd Marsh.
