We are a gathering of people who enjoy watching and studying birds and wildlife. We welcome people of all ages and skills to join us on our field trips, programs and other events. Most of our monthly programs are bird-oriented, but we also address environmental and natural history topics.
We also offer about 25 field trips. Most are in Lake and Cook County. Our location in northeastern Illinois offers us varied habitat including Great Lakes lakefront, inland lakes, mixed forests, marshes and savanna. However, we also schedule overnight visits to unique habitats throughout Illinois and other states. See field trips here.
Most events are free and open to the public. Some events have capacity limits with member priority. Some events have user fees for guides, facilities, etc.
