WE03 Mill Creek & Del Norte Redwoods – GOLD | 2017
Time - 8:00 am - 3:00 pm
Trip Leader(s): Tony Kurz
This intimate trip with only 10 participants, and includes lunch, will travel north in a van that accommodates the entire group. The Mill Creek Watershed is a newer addition to the State Park system here on the North Coast. The car-pool drive will take more than an hour, but the lagoons, giant redwoods and possibly the local Elk herd will provide a most scenic trip. Nestled in the redwood forest, riparian habitat along Mill Creek provides excellent birding opportunities, Tony is a State Parks employee and has birded this location regularly. A great mixture of forest bird species and riparian specialties will be seen including Ruffed Grouse. A bag lunch is included, let us know if you have any food allergies or special diet (email@example.com). Bring your own water. This event will meet at the Arcata Community Center, out front of the building. Festival headquarters will not be set up there quite yet so just look for others with binoculars and spotting scopes.
