This trip substitutes for our usual May trip to Walker Ranch which will still be closed due to the effects of fire damage last summer including mudslide instability in the canyon.
Directions to L.A. River Willow St: From the 405 Fwy South take the 710 Fwy South to Willow St East. When on Willow St you will immediately pass over the L.A. River and turn left at Golden Ave (the first stop light). Go only a short distance on Golden Avenue and turn left onto 26th Way which dead-ends into DeForest Avenue along the river. Park on DeForest Avenue and walk up the walkway to the river bicycle path where we will meet.
A scope is recommended but not imperative. We will study shorebirds, waterfowl (etc.) in the riverbed plus land birds along the river
