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.

Where: Lake Conestee Nature Park
Two separate Outings Planned:
Time: 8:00 AM until noon
Leader: Paul Serridge
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: Denise DuPon
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.
When: Saturday, December 27, 2014
Event: North Greenville Christmas Bird Count
Compiler: JB Hines
Comments: Birders of all skill levels are needed to help with the Christmas Count. Less experienced folks will be coupled with more experienced leaders, so don't be shy. J.B. will send out detailed instructions a couple of weeks before the count date. See our Christmas Bird Count Page for a map, checklist, and results from years past. If you're interested in helping, email J.B.
