Outings are typically held on a Saturday morning, and guests are always welcome. In case of inclement weather, you may contact the trip leader (if one is listed) for last minute changes or cancellations. We also list outings scheduled by other area bird clubs or organizations which are of special interest to our club.

Comments: Meet at the gravel parking lot ("JP - Parking 1" on the Google Map linked below) at Jackson Park at 8 AM. We'll bird briefly at Jackson Park before moving up to Hooper Lane to look for shorebirds, probably also stopping briefly at Mills River Park.
Bring a spotting scope if you have one, as well as sunscreen, snacks and drinks. Insect repellant is sometimes needed at Jackson Park. For those interested, we'll grab lunch at an area restaurant after Hooper Lane.

Where: Lake Conestee Nature Park
Two Separate Outings Planned:
Time: 8:00 AM until noon
Leader: Chris Peak
Comments: Meet on the Mauldin Road side of the park near the baseball complex to bird a variety of paved and natural surface trails in the park. The park entrance is at 840 Mauldin Road, Greenville (opposite a FedEx facility and the junction with Ridge Road). On entering the park, drive ~ 200 yards and turn left into a parking area behind the Little League ball fields. We meet at the trailhead at the upper corner of this parking area.
Time: 8:00 AM until 10:30 AM
Leader: Don Faulkner
Comments: We're offering this slower-paced walk for anyone not up for a full morning of birding. Meet at the Spanco Drive parking area next to the old Conestee mill and dam at 8:00 AM to bird a section of the paved trail, planning to be done by around 10:30 AM.
Note the new date for the migration count below:
When: Saturday, September 26, 2015 (rain date Sunday, September 27)
Event: Greenville County Annual Fall Migration Count
Coordinator: Paul Serridge
Comments: With the help of many individual leaders we will cover as much of Greenville County as possible. Reports are also encouraged from back-yard birders. Past Greenville County Migration Counts have resulted in well over 100 species. Contact Paul to volunteer to help.
See our Migration Counts Page for more information, including historical data and a map of the county showing areas to be covered.
Migration Count details will be announced to club members via email.
