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 oak woodland/chaparral of the upper canyon, then we'll head down to the riparian area along the creek. This is a special opportunity to be transported by vehicle through a steep and somewhat remote area with only walk-in access for the public. Bring lunch, water, and binoculars.
