Join us for a walk in this sanctuary near Wickenburg, jointly operated by The Nature Conservancy and Maricopa County Parks. Besides circling the well-known Palm Lake, we will explore a couple of other trails, including the River Ramble, and hopefully up to Lyke’s Lookout. A view of the running Hassayampa River is a welcome sight. A variety of trees, including cottonwoods, willows and mesquite are easily observed, which will enable us to see some wintering and resident desert birds, including Ladder-backed Woodpecker, Abert’s Towhee, and Yellow-rumped Warbler. There is a $5.00 entrance fee, plus a $7.00 Maricopa County outreach fee.
Difficulty: 2. Limit: 10.
Bring a lunch.
Meet at the visitor center shortly after 8:00 A.M.
