Hi all, Just a note to say that Santa Ana was closed yesterday afternoon due to a grass fire in Mexico that jumped the river into the refuge. As of 10pm last night, it was not contained. We don't have updated info this morning but suggest calling before heading to Santa Ana. Hopefully it will be contained soon without too much habitat destruction. Once the refuge is re-opened, bird walks and Hawk Watch will continue on the following schedule (which includes corrections to what I wrote yesterday.)
Please note that the guided walk schedule will be changing during the latter part of March.* For the next week, walks will continue to be every day but Sunday at 8:30 am*. There will *not *be a walk on Thursday, March 15. *After this, walks will be Thursday through Saturday*, still at 8:30 am. Meet at the Visitor Center.
*Hawk Watch is March 15-April 15, 8am-1pm* on the levee. Spotters, counters and visitors are welcome and appreciated!
