Saturday, May 19 (5:45 am)
Join Feather River Land Trust and Upper Feather River Certified California Naturalists, led by Kristi Jamason, for a magical early morning experience at the Sierra Valley Preserve.
The Dawn Chorus in the scrub uplands of the Sierra Valley Preserve features the melodious warbles of Western Meadowlarks and Sage Thrashers, descending trills of Brewer’s and Vesper Sparrows, the buzz of Spotted Towhees, as they greet the day from atop sage and bitterbrush, against a backdrop of the awakening marsh of the Middle Fork, Feather River. The quiet enjoyment of the Dawn Chorus will be followed by exploration of other sights, sounds and fragrances of the Preserve in the company of locally trained naturalists.
Arrive by 5:45 a.m. for prime listening enjoyment. Bring binoculars and camera if you have them, and perhaps your favorite warm beverage and/or a camp chair. Dress for a cold, misty morning and wear layers. Be prepared for the elements, walking on uneven terrain, and to be delighted. We love our furry friends, but please no dogs at this event.
Parking will be at the Sierra Valley Preserve entrance on County Road A-23, south of Romano's Sierra Valley Farms, ~2.7 miles south of Highway 70. Park near the corrals and join the group assembled nearby. Call 530-283-5758 for more info.
