Walk on the Wildside
Bring the family and join Regional San’s Bufferlands staff for our annual Walk on the Wildside event, a celebration of International Migratory Bird Day.
Walk on the Wildside highlights local efforts to protect and restore Central Valley habitats. This FREE family-oriented event includes hiking tours of local wetlands and forests, presentations, a live animal show by Wildthings, Inc., music by Horse Sense, children’s hands-on activities, informational exhibits and more!
Guided and self-guided tours are offered throughout the day. Explore a pristine valley oak riparian forest in search of migratory songbirds. Visit numerous wetland and riparian forest restoration projects. Take one of the Bufferlands guided tours and enjoy a unique opportunity to see a rare heron and egret rookery—one of only four in Sacramento County. This rookery contains more than 120 active nests of great blue herons, great egrets and double crested cormorants. Spotting scopes will be available for optimum viewing of these fascinating and beautiful birds.
Walk on the Wildside has grown to be one of Sacramento’s favorite outdoor environmental events, and both the event and parking are FREE! The fun activities are held at the beautiful Beach Lake Park, near the town of Freeport. Check back soon for more details about this year’s program and activities!
