CAS Field Trips

Most trips are led by volunteer Clearwater Audubon Society leaders. Unless otherwise indicated, they are free and open to the public.. We host monthly guided bird walks at Moccasin Lake Nature park which is free to the public. The schedule will be updated as more information becomes available.
CAS strongly encourages car pooling and helping the driver with gas expenses. If you want to go on a field trip and do not want to car pool then you may want to consider meeting the group at the destination.
