  Field Trips & Meetings
  • General Meeting: Wednesday, Feb 10 - 7:00 pm - John Roberts will present "The History of, and the Upcoming Plans for, Ivins Reservoir."  This reservoir is an important water source for many bird species that come to our area as well as for the people. Come early and enjoy the many visitors to the Pond.  If time permits, we will have a short presentation on "The Rock Ptarmigan".  If not, we will save that for another meeting.  Board Meeting begins at 5:45 pm and all are welcome to come sit in and learn what things are being discussed.   (Tonaquint map)
    Field Trip: Saturday, February 13 - Parowan Raptors.  Meet at the St. George BLM at 8:00 am to carpool north.  Stop at the Maverick Station (third off-ramp going to Cedar off I-15)  We will meet  Steve Hedges there at 9:00 am.  Steve tells me the weather will be sunny and in the high 50s.  However, if you have a 4-wheel or truck . . .you might want to bring it.  Some of the roads may be a bit mucky.  (BLM map)
  • Meetings are always the second Wednesday of each month. There will be refreshments after all of our meetings if you want to ask questions or gab a little about birds.
  • We will have a field trip every month this year with the exception of August and December. Plan for your next outing by visiting our field trip schedule page.
