FIELD TRIP: Birding at the Watershed 5/18 or 5/19

Birdwalk in the Watershed

Friday, May 18, 7:30-9:30 am
Saturday, May 19, 7:30-9:30 am

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 species. Space is limited. RSVP Jaime Hendrickson at or 805-464-5347. 

Directions & Details
We will be meeting at the Anza Horse Arena parking lot at 7:30 am. While we do start birding in that area, please try to be on time. I have included the link with directions below. Please note that North Ferrocaril and Ferrocaril do not connect and web directions can easily take you to the wrong access. If something should arise that morning, or you get lost, call 805-235-8976.


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

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