OLLI Outdoor Adventures: Wildlife along the American River

Join us for a pleasant early spring hike in search of our State Bird, the California Quail. We'll be trekking, rain or shine along the American River as we meet with a naturalist at the Effie Yeaw Nature Center in Carmichael's Ancil Hoffman Park. Afterward, we'll put what we've learned to test and fan out to see if we can spot them on our own. Bring your binoculars and cameras for this fun, Saturday adventure. Updates will be provided via email to registered participants on recommended weather-wear and meeting location.

Note: Participants should be confident about hiking in natural terrain with frequent changes in elevation and in keeping pace with a group. Participants must provide their own transportation to the hiking site. Carpooling is encouraged. Wear sturdy, dependable footwear, and be prepared to stand for prolonged periods of discussion. Bring binoculars and bottled water. All participants must sign a liability waiver for this learning experience. Directions, carpooling details and clothing suggestions will be sent by email prior to class.
