Deer Creek Hills Bird & Wildflower Walks

Date: Saturday, April 22nd
Time: 9:00 a.m.

Birds and Wildflowers of Dry Creek Hills Hike

"Hikers should meet at Latrobe and Stone House Roads (north of Highway 16 or Jackson Rd. and west of Rancho Murieta). Both roads can be accessed off of Jackson Rd. Carpooling is strongly encouraged since parking is limited, and all vehicles should park on the dirt portion of Latrobe Rd. Weather is unpredictable, so please bring layers of clothing for all weather types. Water, light snacks and a hat for warmth and shade are also suggested. There is active cattle grazing at Deer Creek Hills, and the conditions of hiking routes vary and may include stream or fence crossings and uneven terrain. Heavy rain and/or wind cancel hike/ride. Please RSVP at 916 216-2178 – tour size is limited for your enjoyment."

Don't miss this beautiful and informative walk led by local birder Ed Pandolfino and other naturalists. Just minutes from Sacramento!

  1. The geology hike at Deer Creek Hills was also quite excellent. I'll have to go back to Deer Creek Hills Regional Park later in the spring to try out the wildflower and bird hike.
