EVENTS, MEETINGS, TRIPS, & CALENDAR

Queens County Bird Club relies upon club dues for our activities and for our speakers. Guests are always welcome at meetings and on our trips and we hope that you will also join (see page Join Our Club). 

MEETINGS:
 Please arrive at 7:30 pm for free refreshments so the meeting may begin promptly at 8:00 pm. Note that the venue requires its doors to be locked, so arriving late results in an interruption of the meeting to open the door.

FIELD TRIPS:   All participants must notify the trip leader at least two days in advance. See calendar for trip leader phone number or email address. 
  • Half-day or "mini" trip - Starts between 7 and 8 am, continues until lunch time. May be longer if the birding is good.                  
  • All Day trip - Starts between 7 and 8 am. Lunch is usually brown bag, but please ask the trip leader. Trip may end with dinner at a restaurant.
  • Overnight trip - information will be provided in a PDF below.
