Those who have taken this course before or are experienced birdwatchers may enroll for the field trips only. 

Field trips are limited to 16 students. Information on time and location of field trips will be available at first class. Field trips start early and go all all morning. Forsythe trip will go until about 3pm as it is a considerable drive from Princeton. Due to COVID-19 carpooling and sharing of binoculars is not permitted, and masks and/or social distancing will be required for all participants. If the State of NJ restrictions prevent us from holding the outdoor field trips, we will refund you the fee for the field trips sections of the class.
