Nature Hike on Reserve
Join Reserve Naturalists on Friday, March 3, 2017, for a hike (8:30 am to 11:00 pm) through the UC Merced Vernal Pools and Grassland Reserve to observe birds, mammals, and plants. The 6,500 acre Natural Reserve is right next to campus. Come see fairy shrimp swimming in the vernal pools! Coyotes and brush rabbits are often seen. A golden eagle and burrowing owl may even be spotted. Bring a day pack with water bottle, camera, and binoculars. With all this rain, it is muddy, so please wear rain/mud boots! Meet at 8:30 am sharp at the entrance gate on Rancher's Road, 50 yards north of the Student Services Building. No fee. Limited to 20, but a reservation is required. Open to all. To reserve a space and for more information, contact Mo Kolster at email@example.com.
