Field Trips

Schedule  2019

Our  field trip committee includes Nancy Vicars, Bob Holbrook, Jimmy Woodard and Hal Yokum.

 

Field trips may need to be canceled or postponed due to weather or other unforeseen conditions.  It is always best to notify the leader that you plan to attend in case of delays or cancellations. Participants should always bring snacks and beverages to all outings.  In some cases, a sack lunch for all day events.

Meet at the IHOP at 7708 NW Expressway. We will leave precisely at 7:00AM. Try to carpool if you can.   We will stop by Lake Elmer north of Kingfisher. This is a state Wildlife Management Area so you will need either a hunting or fishing license or a Conservation Pass (available from WalMart). We will be back before 7:00 pm.

April 27, 2019 – Little Sit

Marion Homier and John Cleal will be hosting their annual Little Sit (an informal “sit” with no rules of any sort) in Choctaw at our home at 3626 Santa Fe Drive on Saturday, April 27th from 9:00 a.m. until dusk.  We’ll provide modest snacks plus sodas.  Attendees should feel free to bring their favorite snacks to share, and definitely bring folding/camp chairs if you have them.  The rain date will be May 11th, but in case of inclement weather on April 27th, call and check with us regarding status as we may bird that day from indoors through the windows as we did last year when the weather brought in a male Baltimore Oriole for great views and a total of 26 species.

Notification of attendance is always appreciated:  phone (405) 390-2001 or email at mhomier@yahoo.com  Come-and-go or come-and-stay,  we hope you’ll join us. 

Directions  Due to construction on I-40, we recommend the following if taking Interstate 40 eastbound:  Take Exit 162 at Anderson Rd.  Go north on Anderson about ½ mile to SE44th.  Turn right on SE44th and go east 5 miles to Triple X Rd. Turn left (north) on Triple X Rd. and go appx. ¼ mile to Santa Fe Drive.  Turn left onto Santa Fe and after appx ½ mile, bear to the right at the “Y”.  Note: After Santa Fe bears to the right and turns north the house numbers series change significantly.  We are the first house north of the intersection with Railhead Dr.  There are two flags on a flagpole in the front yard.
