Saturday, February 24, 9:00 am, Lopez Lake Plant and Bird Walk
Join Audubon, California Native Plants, and Sierra Club on a plant and bird walk. Expect to hike about 4 miles with a 200-foot elevation gain. We will be looking for waterfowl, which should be plentiful and visible along the trail, as well as an abundance of early spring flowers. A continuation hike to the top of the Duna Vista lookout is an option. Directions: From Arroyo Grande, follow the signs towards Lopez Lake. After crossing the dam, but before entering Lopez Lake County Park, turn right on Hi Mountain Road and proceed 0.8 miles to the junction of Upper Lopez Canyon Road. Bear left on Canyon Road and proceed 3.6 miles to the old entrance of the Boy Scout Camp (now part of the County Park). Enter the gate, if open, if not park along the side of the road. Restrooms are available. No day use fees will be charged. Bring water and snacks, and dress in layers for changing weather. A hat, sunscreen, and sturdy shoes are recommended. For more information, call Bill at (805) 459-2103 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Rain or the threat of rain cancels.
