Training Trips


Trip Leaders

A round-table discussion amongst trip leaders on every subject related to leading trips.  For example, planning for the upcoming season, how to facilitate trips, how trip leaders can use the website to make life easier for them, etc.  Planning on a two-hour early evening meeting.  Agenda will be sent out soon and invites have been made to those who have led trips in the past couple years.  However, if you are interested in attending and have not been invited (I do make mistakes ... infrequently, I hope), please contact me.

Sept Club Meeting

David Wike of the Idaho Bird Observatory will give a presentation on trapping and banding birds during their fall migration. The Boise Front provides a unique opportunity for this work because many migration paths pass through the area. Field trips to accompany the birders as they trap and process birds are very popular, and there may be volunteer opportunities available. There should still be 4 weeks (7 days a week) of song bird trapping and banding and 5-6 weeks of hawk/forest owl trapping and banding as well as hawk watch counting left in the migration season.

This class meets that requirement. Participants will receive instructional
