March 19 Field Trip to Upper Lake Reclamation Area to view heron nesting sites

Redbud Audubon Society will hold a special field trip on Saturday, March 19 to the Reclamation Area near Upper Lake to view the Great Blue Heron nest-ing site there.

The rookery is located along a branch of Rodman Slough. The event involves a flat walk of about one mile. Bring binoculars for a good view.

The Reclamation Area is owned by the County of Lake and is open to the public. However, parking is limited. Those attending are urged to arrange their own carpooling if possible. Redbud Audubon does not make carpool arrangements but individuals are free to do so.

The plan is to meet at the Upper Lake Park on Highway 20 at 8:45 and caravan to the Reclamation Area site, leaving at 9 a.m. sharp. Caravanning is a good idea if you have never been to this area. For information call Roberta Lyons at (707) 994-2024.


We encourage everyone to get out and look for birds. Great places are both of the State Parks; Rodman Preserve, which is open every Saturday morning from 9 a.m. to noon; Rodman Slough County Park; Highland Springs, Lakeside County Park; and even your own back yard.
