This is a co-Placer Land Trust/Sierra Foothills Audubon Society event.  All levels of experience are welcome.  This private property is a short distance upstream from Hidden Falls Regional park.  We will meet at 8:30 am at the property.  Please sign up in advance through the Placer Land Trust website: http://www.placerlandtrust.org/calendar-2/ (scroll down through “Coming Events”), or contact Janet Voris (janet.voris@placerlandtrust.org or (530) 887-9222).  She will provide directions on how to find the preserve.  We will saunter along the banks of Coon Creek and wend slowly through open blue oak grassland, looking and listening for yearround residents and migrating songbirds.  We’ll practice basic birding identification skills and will get to know the common residents of this beautiful riparian, open-forest habitat, and hear (and maybe see) warblers and other migrants.  Please bring binoculars if you have them.  No more than a mile of walking; some uneven terrain.  There are no facilities on the property.  Enrollment limited to 20 people.  Heavy rain will cancel event.

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