U3A members are welcome to this friendly, knowledgeable group. Levels of knowledge are not important but it is good to have enthusiasm and be part of a team. The wearing of suitable clothing and footwear is important. It also helps to have sustenance and binoculars at field meetings. Members are responsible for their own safety and welfare at these meetings.
