About this event

The CA Dept of Fish and Wildlife, Gray Lodge Wildlife Area (Gridley, CA) hosts 1.5-hour, weekend public walking tours, beginning at 1230PM. Wildlife abounds, as we often encounter hawks, rabbits, herons, turtles, cormorants, swallows and so much more on this tour. Known as one of the premier birding spots in northern CA, ducks and geese usually take the spotlight. Special sightings, including eagles, otters, phainopeplas and peregrines may occur. Local experts will lead you on a 1/3-mile stroll, to an elevated viewing deck. Here you will have a bird's-eye view of wildlife. Self-guided visits are also welcome. Tours cancel in heavy rain. Area public use, including tours, requires daily on-site registration. There is no additional cost for tours. Limit: 12 people per tour.

COVID: Guidelines for the CA Dept of Public Health, CDC, Butte Co Public Health and CA Dept of Fish and Wildlife will be followed, which may include masking and/or physical distancing. Be prepared for your visit and respectful of other visitors.
