Wednesday Night Program (9/30)

The Laramie Audubon Society is doing things a little differently this Fall. Our September evening program will be Wednesday evening (9/30) at 6:30 p.m. in the Washington Park Bandshell. Our theme for the evening is Our Best Birding Stories. Join local celebrities, including our own Tim Banks, former LAS President, for an outdoor evening of sharing stories about past birding adventures. If you feel so inspired, perhaps you’ll share as well.

Please wear your mask and be prepared to physically distance. Feel free to bring your own food and/or beverage and remember to bring plenty of warm clothing. You may want a blanket or cushion for sitting on the metal park benches.

Field Trip - Saturday, September 12th

We will meet at Hutton Lake National Wildlife Refuge on Saturday morning (Sept. 12th). Although the lakes have been shrinking through the summer, there are still some ducks and shorebirds being reported via eBird.

Please pre-register by emailing us at and bring/wear your mask as well as the usual water, sun protection, snacks, and birding supplies. New policy: LAS will only share spotting scopes that are equipped with camera viewers; we are currently uncertain whether we will have any such scopes at this field trip.

Directions to Hutton Lake National Wildlife Refuge: If coming from Laramie, head south on 3rd Street/ US-287, turn right onto County Road 22 (toward the cement plant), then turn left onto Sand Creek Road (parallel to railroad tracks - many people have missed this turn and mistakenly entered the cement plant parking lot). Stay on Sand Creek Road for about 8 miles, then turn right at the National Wildlife Refuge sign. Meet at the parking area just inside the fence, adjacent to the Refuge's information board.

Fall Event Schedule

Please see the Events page of this blog for Laramie Audubon's Fall 2020 schedule.  In consideration of Covid-19, we've made some changes to our typical protocols.  Please be sure to wear a mask and be mindful regarding social distancing at all LAS events.  Due to potential risks associated with carpools, our Fall schedule focuses on birding spots within or close to Laramie.  In addition, we are REQUIRING people to pre-register for field trips by emailing us at so that we can plan for the anticipated group size.  Depending on the group sizes at our initial trips, we may set size limits for the later trips.  

The Fall field trip schedule kicks off at 8 a.m. on Saturday morning (September 5th) at Greenhill Cemetery's south gate near the corner of Willet and 19th Streets.
