Field Trips

Join our volunteer naturalists for a walk outside, and learn about the natural world. More eyes mean more sightings! We have trips in the Calgary area year-round, to observe all aspects of nature – birds, plants, insects, mammals, geology, and more – and special trips to more distant natural areas.
