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!
DIRECTIONS: This tour begins at the boat launch at Pardee Lake. Give yourself plenty of time to arrive since it is easy to miss your turn and may require backtracking along the route. Use 4900 Stony Creek Rd as the address when using Google Maps or search for Pardee Lake Recreation. Drive time from Hutchins Street Square in Lodi, California to the Pardee Lake tour location is about 45 minutes.
