Earth Day Bird-a-thon Bus Tour

Whether you are a beginner or a serious birder, enjoy spectacular desert and mountain scenery on the Earth Day Bird-a-thon Bus Tour, a guided bus tour to well-known birding and nature hotspots in and around the Coachella Valley. Water and snacks will be provided. Bring a sack lunch to enjoy at one of the stops along the way. Before the day is over, we hope to identify 100 different bird species, have lots of fun, and raise money for conservation. The event is led by Kurt Leuschner, Professor of Natural Resources, College of the Desert. Attendees will meet at 6:45am for an on-time 7:00am departure. Admission is $50 per person and reservations are required by Wednesday, April 18.
