Birding at Bobelaine Sanctuary
Chamber Events Community Events Visitor & Community Events
Bobelaine is a 430-acre National Audubon Sanctuary along the Feather River, managed by Sacramento Audubon Society. It's a rare remnant of the riparian forests that once extended two to five miles on either side of the rivers in the Central Valley. Bobelaine is listed as an "Important Bird Area" by the National Audubon Society and the extensive forest of giant cottonwood, valley oak, sycamore and willow is home to a wide variety of birds and wildlife throughout the seasons. We'll explore the trails and see deer or a family of river otters frolicking along te river. Heavy rain will cancel the trip. Expect to walk about 2 miles on mostly level ground. Be sure to bring a lunch and binoculars. A sack lunch can be ordered for $15 at the end of your registration.
Meet at Swan Central and car pool to Bobelaine Sanctuary, west of Live Oak. Duration of tour is 3.5 hours and driving is 15 miles, each way.
