This year we have a unique opportunity to experience the Tall Forest at the Cosumnes River Preserve. Dr. John Trochet, a well-known field ornithologist, will lead you deep into one of the finest riparian habitats left in California. There you will see a rich variety of up to 90 resident and seasonal bird species. Since this is an early-morning tour, you may also see beaver, river otter, striped skunk, raccoon, coyote, squirrels, deer and other animals. In spots the paths are nothing more than animal traces, so dress prepared to push through the underbrush and berry thickets. This tour is appropriate for people who are sure-footed and able to walk several miles. Rubber knee boots are recommended because it is likely to be muddy and wet. Serious birders will not want to miss this tour because the Tall Forest is generally closed to the public. Rain or shine, this will be an experience to remember.

Meet your guide at the corner of Desmond and Bruceville Roads at 5:00 a.m.
