This is the festival’s most popular tour. Enjoy your drive through the Sierra foothills to Pardee Reservoir, where you will board a boat with East Bay Municipal Utility District naturalists and biologists. They will take you around the reservoir (which is closed to the public this time of year) to see early-arriving Golden and Bald Eagles, as well as other raptors, including Osprey, that frequent the area. This boat tour also offers uncommon bird species not seen on other tours, including loons, grebes, mergansers, and Bufflehead Ducks. In years past, bobcats, deer and other mammals have been spotted. Dress for the weather and bring your binoculars! Learn more about Pardee Recreational Area by visiting https://rockymountainrec.com/lake-facilities/listing/pardee-lake-recreation-area.
