Salt Springs Valley Resort


Central Sierra Audubon Society (CSAS) outing to Salt Springs Valley is set for Saturday, Feb. 3. This is one of the favorite field trips in Calaveras County with a variety of habitats including ponds, grassland, oak woodlands and resort lake. We usually see more than 50 species of birds. Primary targets will be Ferruginous hawks, Lewis’s woodpeckers and Rough-legged hawks. Meet at Barrow’s in Sonora at 8 a.m. to carpool to Copperopolis pond, about 1/4 mile along Rock Creek Road off Highway 4 near Copperopolis or meet at the pond at 9 a.m. Bring water and lunch which we will enjoy at the resort which also has restrooms available ($15 per car). Finish around 2 p.m., but if you need to depart earlier, we will get to the resort around 11:30 a.m. Rain will cancel. Trip leader is Paolo Maffei (209)532-8426.
