Description

The less visited Five Mile Recreation Area of Bidwell Park is the setting for a fun family adventure. The riparian ecosystem along Big Chico Creek is a great place to see a large variety of bird species. It is excellent birding for beginners, both youths and adults. Please bring water and binoculars if you have them. Some binoculars will be available to borrow.
