MDAS Field Trip — Lodi Lake & Woodbridge Preserve
November 15 @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm
** Please note change in trip date **
We’ll bird first at Lodi Lake and its riparian area alongside the Mokelumne River. Plan to see waterfowl and many bird species including Woodpeckers, White-breasted Nuthatch, Cedar Waxwing, Herons, Warblers and Wood Duck. (We’ve had Varied Thrush in the past but cannot guarantee!) From Lodi Lake we’ll move on to Woodbridge Ecological Preserve, where we’ll see waterfowl and other birds, including hopefully some early-arriving Sandhill Cranes.
Dress in layers. Bring water, snacks and lunch if you choose. This trip is limited to 12 participants. Rain cancels.
Hike Rating: 2 – Easy to moderate loop of 1.5 – 2 miles on level ground with some paved areas. A few very short off-trail lookouts with easy to moderate slope access. There are a few benches to rest on as well.
