      This at least is progressive. I wish Anderson River Park wasn't being managed in the opposite direction. It was fabulous, extensive riparian habitat that is rapidly being destroyed.

      Hi all.


      I have been in attendance at two recent meetings between members of SAS, YAS, CVBC and the management of the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area to discuss issues regarding water management etc at the YBWA. Much information was shared by the management that was very eye-opening and encouraging! More details of these meeting will come in the future but for now, two exciting bits of news can be shared.


      First, the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area Management has announced that they will be flooding up two fields this summer specifically to attract and feed migrating shorebirds! follow the link to a map showing the location and some info about getting around the fields.

      Please note that the fields are surrounded by active rice fields, so farm equipment and activities could be present at any time. Aerial view by Google Earth.


      And, a NEW WALKING TRAIL has been readied near Parking Lot G. This new trail brings us very close to the Least Bells Vireo sighting areas of the recent past that are now closed! Parking Lot G is the Southern most publicly accessible parking lot in the Wildlife Area.
