2009 Registration



Our trips are varied, covering the province from Ottawa to Hamilton and north to the Kawarthas and Manitoulin Island.

You can download a registration form to print out and mail in with your trip fees. Please submit a separate cheque for each trip. If you wish to register 2 or more people for the same trip, please put both people on the same cheque.

Cheques should be post-dated 2 weeks prior to the trip date. Cheques will be cashed one week prior to the trip, unless you notify us at least one week in advance. Cancellations up to 48 hours before the trip date will allow members on the waiting list to participate.

Priority is given to FBO members for field trip registration. Non-members usually cannot be accommodated on popular trips and are subject to a fee surcharge.

If you are interested in leading a trip, or if you know of an interesting place that you would like the FBO to visit, or if you have any trip-related questions, please email our trip
