TH15 Del Norte County Classic – NEW | 2020 | $40
Time - 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Trip Leader(s): Lucas Brug & Bob Brown
This event will meet in Crescent City at the Chart Room Restaurant, 130 Anchor Way.
For those coming from Arcata area, co-leader Bob Brown will meet people at the Arcata Community Center at 7:00 a.m. to help coordinate carpools to then travel to Crescent City (approximately 1.5 hr drive).
A 90 minute drive from Arcata, past rivers, lagoons and old growth redwoods, lands you at the Crescent City Harbor Area (Anchor Way), the 9:00 a.m. meeting place at the Chart Room Restaurant. From here we will drive along the coastal drive, up to Castle Rock and check for Tufted Puffin, visit the mouth of the Smith River, the adjacent riparian areas, the agricultural bottom lands, Lake Tolowa, resident feeders, and places where birds unique to the area have been scoped out. A full day of car birding and short hikes will capture 60-80 birds for your Del Norte ebird list. Optional stops (mouth of Klamath River, etc.) will be made on the return trip. Pack a lunch and water, although there are options in Crescent City to grab something if you wish.
