LA Audubon Field Trippers! Below is described a trip that we have not offered for a long time. It takes in the areas of Shaver Lake / Dinkey Creek, parts of Yosemite NP, Tioga Pass, and Owens Valley (if followed to its conclusion! Unfortunately, we (that’s the royal we) have been stymied by changing logistics in the planning process, and interested participants will need to scramble to line up lodging in some of these resort towns. Our original plans called for greater anticipated expense and a higher cost, but this has been recalculated down from $120 to $75 each! We still have room for 6 more participants, and need another one or two to make it a go, so please commit soon, and please do not reserve if you are not likely to commit, in deference to others who might be aching to get on this trip! Hope you can make it!

As students hike through the mid-beach, they are asked to keep an eye out for evidence that animals were present. This helps to keep students engaged, offers lots of opportunities to compare and contrast animal tracks, and gets students thinking about what wildlife is doing when humans aren’t present.
