Birding auto-tour at Merced National Wildlife Refuge to take advantage of the wintering migrants of the Pacific Flyway in the Central Valley. *Rescheduled due to gov't shutdown*


*Registration now closed*


*Rescheduled due to gov't shutdown*

Come explore one of the Central Valley’s winter birding jewels. Sandhill Crane, Snow, Ross’s, and Greater White-fronted Geese all commonly stay here for winter, along with many varieties of ducks, shorebirds, and raptors. This is an auto tour around the perimeter of the refuge so it is accessible to all. Bring a lunch and we will discuss how the refuges are helping birds survive against the ongoing loss of habitat due to human expansion and climate change.

Note: Rain cancels, with refund.
