Group Description

This group is a virtual meeting place for persons interested in organizing or participating in field trips to deserts, mountains, canyons and other places within Arizona or immediate surroundings. Field trips focus is on plants, animals, mycology, geology, biology, entomology, herpetology, ecology, paleontology, birding, anthropology or microbiology.

The principal purpose of this group is to facilitate exchange of information about past and especially future trips. Trips may be organized through an existing nature oriented club or else by one or more individuals. By posting future planned or proposed trips users can solicit others who may be willing to join, thereby sharing expenses, experiences, and expertise.

Proposed trips should include a brief description of the destination, ways, means and purpose. Hiking difficulty should be added so that all can identify those trips that match their physical capabilities. Give an approximate trip departure location, date and time so that potential participants can plan on joining. All trips, including those offered by other organized groups, can be broadcast to all list members and should also be entered into the Group's calendar (link on home page for AZ_nature_fldtrips.

Drivers and riders will negotiate between themselves any shared expenses, but it is recommended that riders at least cover the cost of gas. The Arizona Natural History Field Trips Group is not responsible for any such arrangements made between individuals.

Users can share via e-mail questions and experiences they have encountered while hiking through the wonders of Arizona's landscapes.

Photos, descriptions, and maps of visited sites can be posted to the files sections.

Membership is by subscription and is limited to people who have either a professional and amateur interest in the study flora, fauna, and ecology of Arizona. Current membership in one of the many nature clubs/organizations is preferred, but not required.
