The public is invited to join the Yolo Audubon Society to experience one of the great concentrations of wildlife in North America on Saturday. The marshes at Sacramento and Colusa National Wildlife Refuges will be full of waterfowl — geese, swans, ducks and grebes and shorebirds.

Depending on conditions, the group will drive the Sacramento refuge’s auto-tour loop to the viewing platform and then walk the marsh trail.

The next stop, if time allows, will be at the Colusa National Wildlife Refuge for lunch, and driving the auto-tour loop. This is a good trip for those new to birding, as well as veteran birdwatchers. Viewing will be mostly from the cars or viewing platforms; very little walking is involved.

Participants should dress in layers (even if it is clear in Davis, the refuge can be cold and damp), bring binoculars, a spotting scope (if you have one), a sack lunch and beverages. Yolo Audubon does not charge a fee, but the Sacramento Wildlife Refuge has a $6 entry fee, or use of a valid pass including refuge passes, current-year federal duck stamp, or an Interagency America the Beautiful Pass.

The group will meet at 7:30 a.m. in the parking lot near Big 5 Sporting Goods at The Marketplace on Covell Boulevard and Sycamore Lane. The return to Davis is expected between 2 and 3 p.m. For more information, contact trip leader Betty Berteaux at 530-756-1686.
