The Big Chico Creek Ecological Reserve (BCCER) is part of the larger Big Chico Creek watershed and home to a great diversity of plants and animals, including over 100 bird species. A historical ranch, the BCCER is now a place for education, research, and habitat enhancement. We will bird the diverse oak woodland/chaparral/meadows of the upper canyon, with some spectacular scenery. If road conditions permit, we will drive the short but steep road to the creek. Bring lunch, water, and binoculars.
