PARTY 36.

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 23 2:30 pm
MERCED NATIONAL WILDLIFE
REFUGE, MERCED

Every fall, thousands of Sandhill Cranes and 
Snow Geese arrive at the Merced National 
Wildlife Refuge. They feed on the surrounding 
fields and return each evening at sunset to the 
Refuge. We will meet at the Refuge and enjoy a 
short hike with expert birders, and learn to 
identify the many species of birds that reside or 
pass through the area. As sunset approaches, 
we will arrive at the sunset viewing area where 
we will enjoy a warm and delicious winter 
picnic while awaiting nature’s phenomenon – 
the nightly return of the cranes and geese.
