San Fernando Valley Audubon Invites you to celebrate
National Public Lands Appreciation Day
With a Free Tour of the
Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve
Saturday September 27, 9:00 AM Sharp
This is a special opportunity to see the lovely Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve with a guide. San Fernando Valley Audubon will provide several knowledgeable guides so that participants can be in a group with similar interests. We anticipate that some people will want a longer walk, some shorter. Some will want to focus on the birdlife, some on the plants and habitat, and others will just want to see this special place. The Young Birders Group of avid young birdwatchers and their families will be on hand and will welcome those with similar interests.
Expert Kris Ohlenkamp will lead a longer tour through the North Wildlife Reserve into our original Wildlife Area, south of Burbank Boulevard, which suffered dramatic disturbance two years ago.
Meeting Place: The Wildlife Area entrance and amphitheater are in the southeast part of Woodley Park. Meet at the amphitheater at 9:00 AM.
Directions:Turn north from Burbank Bl. onto Woodley Ave., which is ½ mile west of the San Diego Freeway (I-405). Travel about ½ mile to the second possible right turn and turn east (right) at the sign for the Wildlife Reserve. Bear right at the fork in the road and go east ½ mile to the Wildlife Area parking. Walk south past the monumental rocks and restroom building to the amphitheater.
Equipment and Clothing:Wear sturdy shoes and layered clothing. Water, a cap or hat with a brim, and binoculars or camera are suggested.
