The Bufferlands of the Sacramento Regional County Sanitation District
consist of over 2,500 acres of grasslands, riparian forest, and wetlands.
Expect raptors, waterfowl, shorebirds, and migratory songbirds. Over 200
species of birds have been recorded. Who knows what we might turn up. This
is also a good chance to see the results of 10 years of intensive habitat
From I-5 south of Sacramento, take the Meadowview/Pocket exit and go east.
Turn south on Freeport (Hwy 160) and go until you reach Stonecrest (the
first street on the left). Turn left and go over the freeway, then head
south until you reach a locked gate. If you reach the town of Freeport,
you've gone too far. Bring water and a snack.
