Come hiking with world renowned birder Dr. John Trochet, Field Ornithologist with U.C. Davis, through some of the most remote riparian areas of the Cosumnes River Preserve. Journey through a portion of the Preserve ordinarily closed to public visitation. You will see many of the jewels of the Preserve; the Tall Forest, the Accidental Forest, and more. With a little luck we should see and hear over 90 species of birds, and a variety of mammals, including deer, raccoon, river otter, beaver, and more.
The meeting location at Cosumnes River Preserve will be posted shortly and attendees will be notified by email.
Make it a weekend event and spend the night at Comfort Inn, 10380 Twin Cities Rd., Galt CA. Mention the Galt Winter Bird Festival to receive special discounts on room rates! Call (209) 744-7180 for discount details.
