Monthly Field Trip: Private Game Preserve, Oxnard

An excellent spot to observe a wide variety of birds including waterfowl, wetland birds, and raptors.

IMPORTANT—We will be birding the preserve entirely on foot, as vehicles are not allowed out on the habitat roads. Covering the circuit will probably require 4+ hours. Also, no parking is allowed inside the preserve compound…our cars must be parked on the left (north) side of the paved road outside the compound.

Directions: From the 101 Freeway take the Las Posas Road exit south (left), then Hueneme Road west (right) to Casper Road. Turn south (left) on Casper Road and continue to where the road eventually turns left through a large entrance gate and leads to the preserve compound.

We will meet at the compound at 8 a.m. Bring lunch and drinking water. Allow one hour and fifteen minutes driving time from the Valley.

Leader is Richard Barth (310) 276-0342.
