Peregrine Audubon would like to invite any interested Mendobirders to
join us on an overnight birding expedition to Angelo Coast Range
Preserve near Branscomb on Saturday and Sunday, April 23 and 24. Angelo
Preserve, which is about 20 miles west of Laytonville, comprises 7,915
acres of pristine forest and meadowland. The Preserve protects one of
the largest remaining stands of old-growth Douglas fir in California.
Other natural communities widespread on the site include chaparral on
south facing slopes, and annual grassland openings on the Eel River
terraces. Smaller areas of Oregon oak woodland, knobcone pine woodland,
and various other communities are present. A few redwoods occur near
the river. The entire watersheds of Elder Creek and several smaller
streams are protected within the preserve.
The cost will be $10 per person. We will make a potluck dinner on
Saturday night. Everyone should bring their own binoculars, field
guides, bedding, water bottle, flashlight, food contributions, and
weather-appropriate clothing. Our accomodations will be unheated rustic
Please communicate with Roger Foote at 707-462-5734 to let us know
you if would like to come and to arrange to carpool.
