Let's Go Birding Together 

Guidelines for Participants

Mecklenburg Audubon bird walks (1/2 day) and field trips (full day or longer) are a great way to learn more about resident and migrating birds in the Charlotte region and beyond. They are also a great way to meet people who share your interest in birds and the outdoors. Beginning birders are welcome on all our trips but we do have at least one a month designed specifically for beginners. Unless otherwise noted, our field trips are free and open to the public.  Come learn about  birds from enthusiastic, volunteer field trip leaders.
 
On occasion, field trips may have to be cancelled (bad weather, etc.) or important details may change (for example, the original meeting spot for a site may have to be changed if there is a trail closure or parking problem). ALWAYS check this site, our local discussion list (Meckbirds), and/or our Facebook group the night before a scheduled field trip for updates.

Liability Statement: By signing up for and/or attending a bird walk/field trip sponsored by Mecklenburg Audubon, you acknowledge these activities may be hazardous. You agree you are voluntarily participating in these activities and assume any risk of physical injury or damage to your property.

To ensure an enjoyable walk for everyone please read our Bird Walk Etiquette guidelines. Thanks and we look forward to seeing you on the trail.

Birding in the Era of COVID

We will continue to adhere to several COVID protocols. Most walks will be limited to 12 participants, but may be more or less at the discretion of the leader, plus the leaders. Field trip (full day walks) limits may vary according to venue. You must pre-register with the leader. We ask that folks continue to observe social distancing as much as possible, and sharing of equipment is discouraged. We will follow the CDC/County Health Department mask guidelines, which are subject to change depending upon the latest recommendations.

Although outside transmission risk has been repeatedly found to low, participants should be aware of the risk of covid transmission with any group activity despite our safeguards.
