July 8, 2023 at 8:30am:  Guided Plant Walk Along Sousa Trail

Meet inside San Luis NWR Visitor Center - 7376 S. Wolfsen Rd, Los Banos, CA 93635

While visiting the refuges of the San Luis NWR Complex, have you wondered the identify of the different plant species you were seeing? If so, join the refuge park ranger on Saturday, July 8, for a leisurely walk along the Sousa Marsh Trail to learn about some of the native plant species growing on the wildlife refuges and some of the ways they benefit wildlife. Summer is officially upon us and temperatures are rising, so this will be a fairly early morning walk. Participants should meet in the visitor center at the San Luis NWR by 8:30 a.m., so we can be at the Sousa Marsh trail by approximately 9:00 a.m. Everyone will carpool to the Sousa Marsh trailhead and we'll spend an hour or so walking the trail and learning to identify some of the more common native plant species there. There is no need to sign up -- just show up! Things to bring should include water, a hat, sunscreen, binoculars, and insect repellant. For more information or to ask questions, call the visitor center at (209) 826-3508, ext. 127.
