Photography at Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge
On Saturday, January 13, Tuleyome’s very own Certified California Naturalist, Mary Hanson, will lead us on an auto tour of the refuge! This tour will be VERY slow pace (around 2 MPH) and will take about 4 to 5 hours. This is the best way to see the most birds. There are designated turnouts along the way, but participants will otherwise be unable to leave their vehicle. A large viewing platform (with a small outhouse) provides a place to eat lunch about halfway through the tour. Please note that there is no running water at the platform. After the tour, feel free to stay and enjoy some of the walking trails or Visitor Center.
Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge is part of the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge Complex. It is located about 70 miles north of the metropolitan area of Sacramento and 7 miles south of the town of Willows in Glenn and Colusa Counties. The refuge consists of 10,819 acres primarily of wetlands, with some grasslands and riparian habitats.
Hopefully Mother Nature will provide almost as much rain as last year to give plenty of water for the numerous ducks and geese. Tuleyome will supply birding guides and detailed directions to the refuge.
Be sure to bring binoculars, cameras, lunch/snacks and water. There is a $6 fee per vehicle to enter the refuge (or $12 for a yearly pass).
Note: All participants agree to abide by the terms and conditions of Tuleyome’s waiver of liability which can be seen and downloaded HERE. All participants also understand that photographs will be taken at the event. If you do not wish to be photographed, you must tell the photographer and avoid the camera’s line of sight.
A $5 donation to Tuleyome is requested, but is not required to attend the event.
