First Bear River Excursion a Success 

On July 29th, beginner birders gathered at the Bear River Campground Day-Use area for a morning stroll along the cool waters of the river. Expert birder and president of the Sierra Foothills Audubon Society, Rudy Darling led the excursion, teaching guests how to identify birds by their distinct calls. 

Although late in the birding season, we were able to identify a number of birds including: wren, turkey vulture, oak titmouse, morning dove, raven, downy woodpecker, bush tits, yellow warbler, quail and a flock of lesser goldfinch. Thank you to Rudy and everyone who join us for this walk.

Sad you missed it? Not to worry, we have another Bear River Excursion August 28th from 6:30-8pm.  SYRCL's own River Science Project Manager Betsy Harbert will lead our walk as we identify native plants in the Bear River canyon.  To join, RSVP to Daniel Belshe, Community Engagement Manager at or call 530-265-5961 ext 201.
