Program #14610RJ
5 Days | 4 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderately Challenging
Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
A local ornithologist leads this quest to view the native and migrating species amid the splendor of Yosemite's lesser-known south rim. Habitat in the national park includes a lodgepole pine forest — home to Williamson's Sapsuckers, Black-backed Woodpeckers and Hammond's Flycatchers — as well as Henness Ridge, a little-known birding spot, and additional bird-spotting habitat that includes orchards, oak forests, creeks, rivers and meadows.


Highlights

• Experience forays into local meadows that are home to Great Grey Owls, Calliope Hummingbirds, Blue Grouse, Mountain Chickadee and Townsend's Solitaire.
• Attend an evening presentation of live owls and a Red-tailed Hawk that has been rescued from the wild.
• Walk the Merced River trails to spot American Dippers, Harlequin Ducks and more.
