Starr Ranch Field Trips

We have two field trips coming up in May at Audubon California Starr Ranch Sanctuary. These trips require reservations since the sanctuary is not open to the public except by appointment or special events. Both nature walks are free of charge but advance reservations through Eventbrite are necessary since the trips have size limits; walk-ons will not be permitted. These trips are not suitable for children, only for adults and teenagers with a parent. Because of the small group size, please sign up for only one field trip. We hope to have more trips there next year. The trips will be led by seasonal ornithologist, Zach Vickers.

Wed, May 15 (9am – 12 noon) NATURE WALK ON THE LOOP TRAIL. This trip will offer good views of beautiful scenery, surrounding foothills, grasslands, trees, and coastal sage scrub.  It should be a good birding area; be sure to bring your binoculars! Wear sturdy shoes with good traction for one steep uphill and one downhill stretch.

Trip size limited to 10 people.

Sat, May 18 (9am – 12 noon) NATURE WALK ALONG BELL CANYON. This will be riparian habitat, again with no views of the development of Coto de Caza on the hills above it. There should be good birding and possibly some water critters to watch for since Bell Creek will still have plenty of water in it. Be sure to bring your binoculars! Wear sturdy shoes with good traction. Trip size limited to 15 people.

DIRECTIONS to Starr Ranch and to the meeting location will be provided by Eventbrite after you make your reservation.
