Indigeny Reserve


Central Sierra Audubon Society (CSAS) invites interested community members to participate in a birding expedition in the orchards and beyond at Indigeny Reserve off Bald Mountain Road near Sonora. The tour leader, Kit DeGear (925)-822-5215 or, will meet participants in the Indigeny parking lot at 8 a.m. Rain will cancel the trip. DeGear says besides the apple orchard, there are large oaks, some pines, stream-side thickets and a marshy area with reeds that provide great habitat for birds. She is hoping to see the Red-breasted Sapsucker and Pine Siskins and be able sneak up on some cool ducks through the reeds on the far side of Phoenix Lake. Bring binoculars and/or scopes, if available, water, sunscreen and a hat. Wear muted colors. Follow the signs from the intersection of Greenley and Lyons/Bald Mountain Roads in Sonora. After a few miles on Lyons/Bald Mountain Road, turn right onto Apple Hill Drive where there is a large sign that says “Apple Valley Ranches.” A quick left turn onto Summers Lane leads to Indigeny.
