Chico WTP – Oxidation Ponds

December 2 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

This trip will initially be limited to 10 people, unless we can get another docent to join us. In that case, we may be able to open it up to 20 people. First come, first serve! We will get a personal and up close view of the winter waterfowl migration at the Oxidation Ponds Wildlife Sanctuary at the Waste Water Treatment Plant, west of Chico. We’ll have a first had look at the returning birds from Alaska and Canada, Northern Pintail, Mallard, Cinnamon Teal, Green-winged and Blue-winged Teal and possibly some unexpected migrants. Meet at the Waste Treatment Plant main office for sign in at 9am sharp. We should be back to the lot by 12pm. To get to the Oxidation Ponds, go west on W 5th St from Hwy 32 in Chico. Follow W 5th St, which becomes Chico River Rd, for 3.9 miles. There is a chemical toilet on the way out to the viewing area. Rain cancels. Please reserve your spot by contacting Matthew Forster, findforster@yahoo.com.
