Winter Finches Field Trip

December 9, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Many visitors to the Sax-Zim Bog in the winter season come to find the elusive Great Gray Owl. Others, come for the more readily seen, bright, and vocal finches. Join us on a this field trip looking for some of the bright winter visitors, such as Pine Grosbeak, Evening Grosbeak, Common Redpoll, and Crossbills. We will also introduce the natural history of these boreal wanderers. Please dress warmly and bring your own food/snacks and something to drink.

The Friends of Sax-Zim Bog is continuing to build and offer diverse programming for all of the seasons! The winter listings include a mix of public programs, field trips, naturalist hikes, and workshops!  All of the field trips are FREE for members who have donated over $25 in the last year. Any non-field trip educational program is free to attend for all. If you are not a member, the $25 Field Trip fee includes a membership and 12-months of free field trips. If you have any questions about any of the programs, field trips, naturalist hikes, or workshops, and to RSVP, please contact Head Naturalist Clinton Nienhaus via email at
