Sacramento Valley Rice Country Field Trip

June 4 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Join the Nature Journal Club for a day of nature exploration, art, and journaling in the rice fields of the Sacramento Valley.

The rice farmers of the Sacramento Valley have worked closely with bird conservation groups to maximize the wildlife potential of the fields. In springtime and early summer rice fields are thriving bird nurseries. The Nature Journal Club will be the guests of the California Rice Commission for a rare behind the scenes tour of Sacramento Valley rice farms. We will search for nesting birds and learn about bird friendly agricultural techniques.

The program is open to all ages and ability levels. No registration necessary. $20 suggested donation.

    Just heard about your nature journal classes and field trips from a friend of a friend. They sound perfect for my life right now and fun. I’m wondering what supplies I should bring should I be able to come to one, possibly June 4 ? I live in Berkeley and still work full-time so I’m only available on weekends usually.
