Young birders welcome at Yolo Audubon wetlands visit

By From page A3 | November 07, 2013

The public is invited to join the Yolo Audubon Society on a bird-watching trip to city of Davis wetlands on Monday, Nov. 11. During this time of year, the wetlands are normally open only on Monday mornings.

Visitors will see many species of waterfowl, shorebirds, egrets, gulls and raptors, with experienced Audubon trip leaders Joan Humphrey and Betty Berteaux available for expert assistance.

Participants of all ages — Nov. 11 is a school holiday — are invited to meet at 7:45 a.m. near Carl’s Jr. in the Oak Tree Plaza at Covell Boulevard and Pole Line Road to car-pool to the wetlands. Alternatively, a group will meet at 8 a.m. at the wetlands access gate near the headquarters of the Davis wastewater treatment plant on County Road 28 northeast of Davis.

The trip will end between noon and 1 p.m. It will be canceled in the event of heavy rain.

For more information, call Berteaux at 530-756-1686.

The Yolo Audubon Society is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization dedicated 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.
