Birding the Burn

Leader: Christy Sherrg   sherrs@infostations.com
 
Mixed-severity fire creates snag forest patches that support biodiversity and are critical for our cavity nesting birds like woodpeckers and the secondary cavity nesters that depend upon their excavations. Spend an adventure-filled day exploring these beautiful and important “complex early serial forests” created in the American River fires of 2008 and 2013 and the Duncan Canyon Roadless Area of the Star Fire of 2001.  Meet in the Grass Valley K-Mart parking lot at 7:00 am to carpool.  Drive time is approximately 1½ hours each way (4-wheel drive vehicles not necessary).  We will do light walking of approximately 2 miles total.  Bring water, lunch, and sun protection.  Please contact Christy if weather is questionable.

Field Trips are FREE.  For more information go to http://sierrafoothillsaudubon.org/.
