Field Trip Policies


Minors (persons under the age of 18) attending an OBA field trip must be accompanied on the field trip by their parent, or by another adult designated in writing by their parent.

Automobile Transportation

OBA does not provide automobile transportation for field trips. Carpooling on field trips is optional.  If field trip participants choose to carpool, they must make their own private arrangements among themselves.

Birding Ethics

OBA requires field trip participants to follow the American Birding Association’s Code of Ethics, developed and promoted by the ABA.
