01 Jul Wednesday Walk – Ball Ranch
Add to Calendar
Ball Ranch, on the San Joaquin River Parkway offers various habitats, including grasslands, wetlands, ponds, riparian areas and oak groves. Cormorants, ducks, mergansers, grebes, raptors, sparrows, finches, quail, gnatcatchers, woodpeckers and many others can be found there. Occasionally we have found Lewis’s Woodpeckers.
There are no restrooms on this property. We will walk a mile or more on dirt roads, but most of the area can be driven for those who prefer driving. Please meet at the Target in the River Park Shopping Center near Highway 41 and East El Paso Ave at 7:45 am. We plan to be finished by noon. The gate to the property must be locked while we are on the property so plan to stay until noon. The gate will be opened at noon for those who want to leave or you may stay and have lunch at the site.
Checklist: binoculars, scope, field guide, snacks, lunch, water, sunscreen, hat, radios
