Lane County Butterfly Club – Field Trips

Know Before You Go

Preregistration for Field Trips is requested

The Lane County Butterfly Club of NABA will offer educational field trips in the greater Lane County Region and Central Cascades. Our field trips often take place in rough or slippery terrain, so proper dress and footwear are essential. NABA field trips may be strenuous or hazardous. The weather and trail conditions can be unpredictable. Participation is at your own risk. Be prepared to sign a release form indicating this. You can view a sample copy of the release form (PDF format*). All NABA field trips are FREE of cost and open to the public. Newcomers and visitors are always welcome. Please remember to bring water, lunch (for most trips), and protective sun/weather clothing, sunscreen, and good hiking shoes.

Pre-registration is done per event. See event details for more information on how to register. If you have any questions, please contact Sharon Blick at [email protected]

All field trip leaders are expected to follow the Field Trip Guidelines
