Take some time this month to check out our trips and workshops. Print the printable PDF’s so you can reference the trip prices while you are planning. Grab a cup of coffee, or your beverage of choice, and plan the whole weekend! Check back frequently as things are being added or changed.


Learn about your local Verde River and the animals that depend on it as well as how Friends has worked with others to develop a healthy river for all. We will have trips and workshops to help you learn.


Learn more about Bats - Janie Agyagos (Odge-uh-goosh) has over 30 years of work experience with the US Forest Service in the capacity of a wildlife biologist.


New to birding?

We have several offerings for you! A beginning bird field trip to Tavasci Marsh with Kathe Anderson, a combo birding workshop and field trip led by Eric Moore, owner of Jay’s Bird Barn. Rich Armstrong is also leading a trip for beginners at the Sedona Wetlands, ending with time at his house so you can see how they have their yard set up.


We hope you will join us! If you have any questions or would like additional information about Early Bird Registration, please contact Jeri Higgins via email or at 928-282-2202.
