Wanderbirds Social Events

As are our lives, all of our Wanderbirds social activities are gradually returning to their traditional, seasonal rhythm. The Club has been known to host annual dinners in the spring, a picnic-hike in the summer, a year-end holiday party and even a week-end Hiking Jamboree in the fall! We look forward to connecting with new Wanderbirds and restoring ties to long-time ‘birds!



Holiday Party. Every December, the Wanderbirds get together (some in holiday finery, others in ugly Christmas sweaters) to send off the old year with great food and drink and a few holiday surprises. But most of all, it’s simply another chance to see what our hiking buddies look like without hats, packs and poles, and to reminisce about so many memorable hikes (and other social events)! Don’t miss out!

CLUB PICNIC HIKES--look for two this coming season!

Warmer days are made for outdoor eating, and the Wanderbirds take this very seriously! The Club always schedules at least one Sunday hike at a location that provides picnic pavilions and grills. The club provides regular and veggie burgers, brats and hot dogs, as well as drinks, and members bring their favorite picnic dish for a picnic pot luck. While most of the club does a somewhat shortened hike, others ready the grills and food. Another great way to end a hike!
