2009-2010 Field Excursions

Meeting times and places will be added here near the event date and will be advertised at TDFC lectures.

REMEMBER as all field trips are affected by the weather and the vagaries of natural history it is essential that you contact TDFC one or two days before a trip to confirm details.

For all field trips you need warm, waterproof clothes and footwear, and possibly food and water.
