Leader: Jim Sipiora
Description: After meeting in the Dunlop Sports Center parking lot** we will carpool over to the drying beds. This field trip will be great for beginning birders and to observe and document what birds are visiting the beds during each season. Birding will be done by automobile and with some easy walking. Please be prepared for the current weather conditions. Please note that after heavy rains the drying beds are not open to vehicles due to flooding.
** Please ensure all valuables in your vehicle are placed out of sight PRIOR to arriving at the parking lot.
