What is a field trip leader? A Golden Gate Audubon field trip leader is the volunteer most seen by the general public and Golden Gate Audubon supporters. They are birders, who lead groups of interested birdwatchers around the Bay Area and beyond to exciting birding destinations. What began as local trips only has blossomed into backpacking and camping trips other parts of California, thanks to our creative leaders. These birders would not call themselves "experts," though many of us see them as such. They are able to identify birds by sight or song and have the people skills to assure the group gets along and has a pleasant time on the trip.

Golden Gate Audubon is looking for more people to join as leaders. With so many interested birdwatchers, we feel there are some great new locations to visit, as well as old locations to revive. Do you have a place you like to frequent for birding? Do you enjoy engaging others in birdwatching? If you are interested in leading bird walks please contact us at 510-843-2222. for more information.
