From Soda Bay Road turn onto Reeves Lane and head to the lake. Then turn right on Starr and drive a short distance; the preserve is located at the intersection of Starr and Clipper. Parking is limited so please carpool if you can.

The field trip will be an easy walk around the perimeter of the property to view songbirds and perhaps some wild fowl. Starting time is 9 a.m. For more information you can email Redbud at or call (707) 805-9410 and someone will get back to you.
