Wanderbirds’ Bus Hikes Remain Canceled Until Further Notice
* Hikes have Resumed for Members Meeting at Trailheads *
***   New Memberships will be Accepted for 2022   ***
 

The Wanderbirds started up Club hikes again in October, initially for established members only, with hike plans announced on Tuesday for hikes on Saturday and Sunday. The hikes are open ONLY to those members who document that they have been fully vaccinated with our Health Coordinators (Health@wanderbirds.org) and also complete a Health and Liability Waiver Agreement. You can see the details on our New Policies page.
 
We meet at trailheads or other locations to begin hikes. We miss our bus and our hope is that we can start with at least some bus hikes in the spring, barring new variant surprises!
 
We’re trying to make it as easy as possible for hike leaders by having vaccination and waiver paperwork completed prior to hikes, and to ensure as safe an environment for our hikers as possible.
 
NEW MEMBER SIGN-UP (and current member renewal)
Our new policies and trailhead hikes have been going well, thanks to our dedicated Board members and hike leaders. The Board feels we are ready to take on new and renewing members, and the forms for this are available on the Membership page. Vaccination status must be documented and waivers completed before new members can join club hikes. Please read and understand about our New Policies before you submit dues payment as a new member.
 
It’s been a long year and a half, but we’re looking forward to re-establishing our bus hikes and post-hike celebrations in true Wanderbirds fashion, in the not-too-distant future.
