Let's Go Birding Together 

Local Bird Walks & Field Trips

Mecklenburg Audubon offers numerous local bird walks throughout the Charlotte region from September through May. These walks are on local greenways or at nature preserves and parks. They usually last from 3-4 hours depending on the bird activity.

In addition to local bird walks, Mecklenburg Audubon sponsors field trips which are longer outings to such locations as Pee Dee National Wildlife Refuge, Huntington Beach State Park in Murrel's Inlet SC, Congaree National Park, etc. Most of these are full day trips which usually require 1-3 hrs of driving to get to the location. Others are weekend trips. They are free and open to the public.

We have a great lineup of field trips for the fall. We will, however, continue to adhere to several COVID protocols. Most walks will be limited to 12 participants, plus the leader. Field trip (full day walks) limits may vary accounting to venue. You must pre-register with the leader participate in a bird walk or field trip. We ask that folks continue to observe social distancing as much as possible. Masks are encouraged within six feet of others and sharing of equipment is discouraged. We will continue to follow the CDC/County Health Department mask guidelines, which are, of course, subject to change.

If you wish to join one of our outings, you will be expected to abide by these guidelines. By signing up for a trip or attending a field trip sponsored by Mecklenburg Audubon, you acknowledge that these activities can be hazardous. You agree that you are voluntarily participating in these activities and assume any risk of physical injury or damage to your property.
