2011 Field Trips

April 9th, 2011

The following is just a start.  It will be changed, modified, and added to as suggestions and requests are made.  There will be weekday trips added as I talk to those that can go on weekday trips.  Also, please note that other than the Mt Adams trip all field trips do not require a 4 wheel drive vehicle.

Here is our calendar for 2011.   It will keep changing, so keep visiting.  Sometimes things change quickly before a scheduled outing.
