TOUR DATE: SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 2023
TIME: 3:30 – 5:40 pm
THIS IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY TO SEE COSUMNES RIVER PRESERVE UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL. Since this is a small group tour, you will have open conversations with the Preserve’s biologists and get all of your questions answered. Jointly managed by 9 private and government agencies, the Cosumnes River Preserve is the finest Valley Oak riparian forest and wetland in California. Explore this key link on the Pacific Flyway and learn why its management is considered a model in conservation partnerships. Experienced tour guides will share the ‘back story’ and guide you through the beauty of the Preserve. You will explore areas that are not open to the public to show how rice farming and managed wetlands provide a home for an extraordinary variety of wildlife. Expect to walk short distances and see hundreds to thousands of migratory waterfowl. Very likely, you will experience the thrill of seeing Sandhill Cranes as they fly into these wetlands for the night to roost.
