Red Cliffs Audubon
2018 Field Trip & Meeting Schedule
* Last night at our board meeting it was decided that we will close Red Cliffs Audubon as of the last of June and go to inactive status for several years. Without a president and a vice-president who can donate a large amount of time to running the chapter, there is not a way to function. There are several great birders who would hate to see the chapter close, but they do not have the time to take over the leadership positions. As of August 2018, our web master, who has produced our website for 15 years, will not longer be available. We will have a June meeting and field trip.
Come fall, we do have people who are going to be running the Christmas Bird Counts. Both the Leeds (Silver Reef) count and the St George count will take place. We will be giving the people in charge of the bird counts our email list so that they can send out notices to anyone who would like to participate. - Keith Davis
For all our trips you will need to bring your lunch and snacks (cold pizza is always good) and plenty of water. Dress according to the weather and don't forget your hat, binoculars and 2-way radios. Carpooling is always encouraged, saves gas and more important there is not enough safe parking place where we stop. A long line of cars has drawn attention by the sheriff in the past. Talking about birds with other people is half the fun.
Watch for details, more info and updates on your e-mail, at our Red Cliffs web site and in the newspaper. Field trips destinations occasionally change, especially end of year trips to areas that are susceptible to fire. It is especially important to check the monthly updates if you plan on meeting the group at any place other than St. George BLM.
Notice: Please read our liability waiver regarding future field trips. This signed form will be required for field trip participation and can be submitted to the field trip guide or a Red Cliffs Audubon representative prior to departure. Thanks for your cooperation--we appreciate it!
