Trips & Meetings

Important notice for all field trips!

We love having people on our trips. However, what we do can sometimes be dangerous if we are not careful. You are strongly advised to read the full rules here. Here are some key highlights to remember.

The rules will be presented again in full before the trip begins. The full list to know can be found here:
