Yolo Audubon walks the West Pond

By From page A4 | October 29, 2013

The Yolo Audubon Society and the Friends of West Pond will host a two-hour birding and botanizing walk along West Pond in Davis beginning at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 6. The free walks, which are open to the public, take place on the first Wednesday of the month.

The West Pond area is a comfortable locale for birding, with level paved paths. Plan to walk/stand for two hours; participants can leave the walk at any time. The walk is approximately one mile on flat paths of the greenbelt. Benches are located along the path and bathrooms are available at UC Davis Medical Building at the north end of greenbelt.

The leaders will greet participants at 9 a.m. at the greenbelt gazebo on the west end of Isle Royale Lane. Bring binoculars and water. Call Gene Trapp at 530-756-6291 with questions about the walk.

The Yolo Audubon Society is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization dedicated to to fostering an appreciation of birds and other wildlife through educational programs and field trips, bringing conservation issues to public awareness, and acting to preserve Yolo County bird life and habitat.
