We're now kindly requesting RSVPs for field trips, so that we can let you know of any weather-related cancelations ahead of time. You'll see an RSVP link on our calendar along with the field trip description. Happy trails!
Full Day Birding Trips
GEAS offers monthly full-day birding trips that are usually within close proximity of Boise. These trips are about enjoying birds and each other's company. We carpool as much as possible to reduce our impact. Visit our calendar for upcoming bird walks.
Wednesday Morning Club
All are welcome to join this weekly club, led by Kathy Barker-McCoy. The group meets at Janjou Pâtisserie on 17th and State, next to Albertsons, and carpools from there to local birding hotspots. The meeting time and birding locations vary by season and weather, so be sure to check our calendar for up-to-date information.
Beginning Bird Walks
This monthly bird walk takes place in local parks, and is great for families and those new to birding. These are two hour walks, and GEAS provides guide books and binoculars for your use. Kids can participate in our "Frequent Flyer Club." Visit our calendar for upcoming bird walks.
Boise River Greenbelt Bird Watching & Litter Patrol
GEAS fulfills our commitment to keep a section of the Boise River Greenbelt clean while enjoying bird watching with monthly trips, Birding the Bethine, from March to October. Visit our calendar for upcoming dates.
