CANCELED: San Joaquin Marsh Field Trip

March 21

Due to the Orange County directive prohibiting gatherings of any size indoor or out, the field trip to San Joaquin Marsh this Saturday is cancelled. The San Joaquin Marsh, Irvine Ranch Water District, is great place to see a wide variety of water birds along with rails, raptors and just about anything that flies anywhere in Orange County. It is a leisurely stroll through a well-designed and maintained facility. A perfect place to spend a Fall morning.
