28 Aug Wednesday Walk – San Joaquin River NWR
We will head north to the San Joaquin River National Wildlife Refuge, which is off Highway 132 west of Modesto. We will meet in front of the Target at El Paseo Shopping Center in northwest Fresno (at Herndon and 99) at 8:00 am and go from there. The refuge is along the San Joaquin River and has a variety of habitat, including riperian, open fields, wetlands, and wooded areas. Expect to see Snow and Ross’s Geese, owls, several species of raptors, and many riperian and woodland birds. The refuge is mostly walking, but well worth the time and effort. Bring a lunch and plan on a longer day due to the drive to the refuge.
