Field Trip: Consumnes River Preserve

Date: Sunday October 29, 2017

Time: 4:30 PM

View Sandhill Cranes and other unique wintering waterfowl and hear a presentation on Sandhill Cranes and their habitats from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. (NSAS Event)


Leader: Woodbridge Ecological Reserve Docent

Description: We will view the cranes' impressive, nightly behaviors at a location that is only open to the public during these special tours. Docent guides are trained in crane ecology, the area's natural history and the Reserve's habitat management, and want your experience to be memorable and educational.

Tours usually conclude a half hour after sunset with the anticipated fly-in of the cranes at the north site where a viewing shelter allows us to be hidden from the incoming birds. It is an awesome sight to view these magnificent birds warbling and flying in to roost for the night.

This field trip is limited to 30 people and costs $10 per person. Please RSVP to Wendy Cole at by October20.
