Description

Join us on a drive through the backroads of Butte County where we are likely to see Tundra Swans and Sandhill Cranes on our way to the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge. Weather permitting, we will walk the part of the trail that goes through the trees and then take the auto tour loop, stopping along the route whenever we find something interesting (such as a Peregrine Falcon or a Bald Eagle), and at the platform where we can spot many species of diving and dabbling ducks, geese and shorebirds. We'll have walkie-talkies available for the driving portions of this trip. Wear sturdy shoes and layers of clothing. Bring water, snacks and lunch.
