Yolo Audubon walks West Pond on Feb. 5

By From page A3 | January 30, 2014

Local residents are invited to join the Yolo Audubon Society and The Friends of West Pond for a two-hour birding and botanizing walk along West Pond in Davis. The free walks take place monthly on the first Wednesday.

The West Pond area is a comfortable locale for birding, with level paved paths. Participants should plan to walk or stand for two hours, but they can leave the walk at any time. The group will cover about one mile on flat paths of the greenbelt, and benches are located along the path. Restrooms are available at UC Davis medical build at the north end of greenbelt on Covell Boulevard.

The leaders will meet participants at 9 a.m. at the greenbelt gazebo on the west end of Isle Royale Lane. Everyone should bring binoculars and water.

For more information, call Gene Trapp at 530 756-6291, visit www.yoloaudubon.org or visit http://daviswiki.org/Friends_of_West_Pond.
