Altacal Audubon is most fortunate to be centered in one of the most diversified wildlife regions in California, the Northern Sacramento Valley of the Pacific Flyway. This unique area is home to exemplary migratory bird habitat and abundant wintering waterfowl, as well as native raptors, and varied terrestrial wildlife. The diverse habitats, mild winter weather, abundant food and rich quantities of water combined with the Flyway provide unique and abundant birding opportunities with well over 300 local species. We are dedicated to preserving and protecting this wealth of birds and their habitats through education, monthly programs on birds and related topics, field trips to natural areas and wildlife refuges, outreach booths at local events and youth outdoor education activities.our history
