May 2018 Field Trip

The next field trip will be Friday, May 4. We will journey to Madera Canyon where we will take a nature photo walk on the Assessable Trail. Some with problems walking may prefer to just go to Santa Rita Lodge and shoot birds. We will leave The Madera Clubhouse at 9:00, proceed to Madera Canyon, and meet in the Proctor Parking lot about 9:30.  A restaurant for lunch will be finalized after we have final numbers for attendance. Directions and a map to Proctor can be found at here. Fee information for parking can be found here. In general, parking is free if you have a National Park pass; otherwise it is $5 (cash) per day. The Assessable trail is paved, and we will walk about 1 mile with an elevation change of only 100 ft.  There will plenty of nature to photograph – including landscapes, trees, flowers, bugs, rocks, small lizards, and a variety birds. If we are lucky, we may spot some deer. Doug Moore, the Education Director of the Friends of Madera Canyon, will join us. He is a trained naturalist and will be available to tell us what we see and shoot. Contact Jim Burkstrand at jimmsp AT aol.com with any questions. Contact Sylvia  at  butler916 AT msn.com  by May 2 to let us know you will join us and to reserve a seat at lunch.
