Join us as we explore the Pine Creek Unit of the Sacramento River Wildlife Area. The riparian forest is dominated by cottonwood, willow, ash, sycamore, and box elder trees, with dense understory of wild grape, pipevine, and poison oak. Among the diversity of species that can be seen along the river are otters, beavers, gray fox, bobcat, western pond turtles, ash-throated flycatchers, great blue herons, egrets, and a variety of birds of prey. At this time of year, we also see Bullock’s orioles, black-headed grosbeaks, western kingbirds, and a variety of warblers. After the walk we’ll have an optional lunch at Scotty’s Landing.
