This online registration system allows you to review and electronically sign the Agreement if you do not have one on file. If you would prefer to manually sign a printable version of the Agreement, you may access it here, and present it to the leader before trip start. If you choose this option, please contact your leader to assure you are signed up for the trip.
Please note: Each person, including each family member choosing to sign the Agreement electronically must login and have a separate account so that the agreement is tied to the individual.

An afternoon trip! Late fall is a great time to look for loons, scoters, uncommon and rare gulls, a variety of geese and things unexpected. Aurora Reservoir has a long history of all that stuff and often it has a nice variety and large numbers of Cackling Geese. Afternoon lighting and weather can be nice. We will view from two or three areas, walking about 2-3 miles total. Mostly on level paths, but there are some slopes, and maybe some walking through grasses. Bring a scope if you have one and we can share. We'll spend the afternoon scanning the reservoir to seek water birds, and we will see raptors, and maybe Northern Shrike. This is a good chance to study gulls and find an uncommon or rare species. There is an entry fee for each car, but we can carpool in from the meeting place, as convenient. Bring layers for a variety of weather. Register online or contact the leader.
