Visit Quail Ridge Reserve on July 7

By From page A5 | June 27, 2012

Local residents are invited to visit the Quail Ridge Reserve, on a peninsula at the southwest end of Lake Berryessa, on Saturday, July 7, from 2:30 to 6 p.m.

The walk is relatively easy, going along hillsides of native grasses, shrubs and trees. It will be led by Quail Ridge Wilderness Conservancy executive director Frank Maurer, a zoologist and ecologist.

In July, the reserve demonstrates a dry upland forest habitat, including native grasses, oak woodland and chaparral. Toward dusk, with the help of a special ultrasonic device, visitors will be able to listen to bats and forest owls.

Wear layers of clothing and bring binoculars, a camera, drinking water and snacks.

To reserve a spot and get directions, call (530) 219-4477. The group will gather at 2:30 p.m. at Markley Cove Resort and will return at about 6 p.m. All participants must leave the reserve at the same time.

Donations are accepted for the conservancy’s efforts to protect Quail Ridge lands.
