Monthly Field Trip to Chilao

Birding the San Gabriel Mountains along the Angeles Crest.

Meet at the Chilao Visitor Center at 7:30 a.m. We will look for Hairy and White-headed Woodpeckers, Mountain Chickadee, Pygmy Nuthatch and many other montane species. Bring lunch and water.

Directions: Take the 210 Fwy. east to Angeles Crest Highway (Hwy 2). Go north for about 45 minutes, look for the Chilao Campground signs and take the second entrance road to the Visitor Center. Your vehicle must exhibit a National Forest Adventure Pass or Golden Age pass.

For those wishing to carpool, plan to meet at 6:30 AM in La Cañada near where the I-210 Fwy and Angeles Crest Highway (SR-2) intersect in La Cañada. Exit the I-210 at Angeles Crest Highway heading north. About one block up is a frontage road on the right, where we will park and carpool.

Leader: Richard Barth, (310) 276-0342.
