Where: see map link below under Directions:

Join Roger Zachary, local Audubon field-trip leader, as we walk along the de Anza Trail section of the Atascadero Mutual Water Company’s property. We will be “birding” in mixed oak woodland and riparian woodland along the Salinas River. We should be able to identify approximately 30 or more bird species.

Sign-up early.  There is a LIMIT to the number of participants. To REGISTER, and for more details, go to

We will be meeting at the Anza Horse Arena parking lot at 7:30 am. While we do start birding in that area, please be on time. If something should arise that morning, or you get lost, contact Jaime Hendrickson at 235-8976 or Roger Zachary at 458-8838.

Remember to wear comfortable shoes, bring a hat, sunscreen, water, and your own binoculars. I will email out the list of birds we see the following week.

There is no water or restroom facilities at the site. Home Depot and Starbucks are the closest facilities.

Please note that North Ferrocarril and Ferrocarril DO NOT connect and web directions can easily take you to the wrong access.
