Winter Raptors Field Trip

December 8, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Colorful winter finches often get lots of attention from visitors to the Bog in the winter months, but finches are not the only winter visitors to see! This field trip will search the open ag-land and roadsides of the Bog for visitors from the Arctic, such as Rough-legged Hawks, Northern Shrikes, Northern Hawk Owls, and more! This field trip will spend time looking for all manner of birds of prey and other winter visitors to the Sax-Zim Bog. Please dress appropriately and bring food and 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
