6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
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.
Join local experts along the Pacific Flyway for an unparalleled opportunity to observe migrant and resident waterfowl, nesting water birds and newly classified species in the picturesque Goose Lake Valley and Warner Wetlands, as well as the Modoc National Refuge and the Summer Lake Wildlife Management Area. Identify many of the more than 300 species of birds found in the vicinity, including Golden and Bald Eagles, two species of Sand Hill Cranes, hawks, harriers and even phalaropes.


Highlights

• Experience the Modoc National Wildlife Refuge with a local birding leader, and hear about a rehabilitation program for injured raptors.
• Explore the Summer Lake Wildlife Area with a wildlife biologist for a close-up look at hundreds of species that reside there, including the Great Horned Owl.
• See a Master Gardner & habitat architect call in wild bluebirds, then take a break from birding at the unique Wild Plum Winery to taste several different varietals.
