Bird Photography: Sweetwater Wetlands/Reid Park 

 Cost - $12

 Sweetwater Wetlands is the top birding area in the Tucson metro   area. This water-rich streamside riparian zone supports a huge   variety of wildlife, including dragonflies, raccoons, hawks, bobcats and dozens of other species that make the wetlands their full- or part-time home.  Paths are flat and either decomposed granite or gravel.

We'll then move to Reid Park where we will have our lunch and see numerous feathered winter visitors.

If you have binoculars, you may want to bring them along. A small notebook and pen or pencil would be useful to record your sightings. 

Be sure to wear comfortable clothes and shoes. A hat and water are suggested.  Bring your lunch so you can spend as much time as you want observing birds and activities that weren't visible when the reeds were very high.

Meet at the Camera Club at 8 AM for carpooling.  We will leave for Sweetwater at 8:15 AM. Bring your lunch. 

Linda Gregory will be our leader.  For questions call Linda at 520-625-5121 or email at lsgregaz@gmail.com.

If you need to cancel please contact the Field Trip Facilitator at philr@iname.com. We may have people on the wait list to take your place.  

Last date for refund is February 4, 2020.
