Andrew selects a different walk location each week and announces that location via email sent to nsas_field_trips @napasolanoaudubon.com . Andrew has a wealth of information regarding birds, plants and just about anything else you might happen to come across on the weekly birding trip. Sign up for the Field Trip eBlast on the link entitled "Subscribe to email updates" located in the left hand column of this Homepage and select Interested in Field Trips Announcements.
