Field Trip: American River Parkway, Spanos Court Access

Sunday, Jul 22, 2018 at 7:30am

Spanos Court
West Howe Avenue

Join Dan for a leisurely walk on the north side of the river across from the Paradise Beach area. This area is fairly typical of most Parkway locations, but has an overabundance of grapes and slightly less blackberry and elderberry which helps attract fruit lovers such as Western Tanager and Bullock’s Oriole. We will likely encounter several riparian species such as Spotted Sandpiper, Killdeer, Song Sparrow, Bewick’s Wren, Spotted Towhee, as well as California Quail.The trip will probably end late morning before the intense heat of the day. Meet Dan in the parking area at the end of the Spanos Court cul-de-sac along the levee. Spanos Court runs west off Howe Avenue between Northrup and Sierra Blvd.
