OCAS FIELD TRIPS

Our field trips, although designed primarily for bird watching, are intended to create interest in flora, fauna, and all natural beauty in Orange County and vicinity. Most outings are on Sunday for a half day (unless otherwise stated) and normally around one mile in walking distance. All trips are cancelled in case of rain or bad weather. The public is always welcome.
