Merced National Wildlife Refuge

SATURDAY, JANUARY 12
7:45 AM – 4:00 PM

The Merced National Wildlife Refuge encompasses 10,258 acres of wetlands, native grasslands, vernal pools, and riparian areas. It was established in 1951 under the Lea Act to attract wintering waterfowl from adjacent farmland where their foraging actvities were causing crop damage. In the last few decades, changes in local agricultural practices and Refuge management activities have reduced these wildlife/crop issues. The Refuge plays host to the largest wintering populations of lesser Sandhill Cranes and Ross' geese along the Pacific Flyway. Each year more than 20,000 cranes and 60,000 arctic-nesting geese make the Refuge home for six months. Here they mingle with thousands of other visiting waterfowl, waterbirds, and shorebirds—making the Refuge a true winter phenomenon. Fee: $70 (includes transportation, gas, entrance fees. Tip to driver is separate). Waitlist only.
