World Migratory Bird Day at Black Lake Preserve

Come bird with us at Eastern Sierra Land Trust's Black Lake Preserve in celebration of World Migratory Bird Day! Black Lake is a rare desert wetland north of Benton in Adobe Valley that is an important stopover site for migratory birds. The alkali lakes and wetlands in Adobe Valley provide a great environment for our feathered friends to rest and refuel during migration. 

Join us for a guided bird walk from 8-10 am on May 14th at Black Lake Preserve to spot these visiting birds, or use our self-guided birding materials on May 15th to bird on your own! If you can’t make it out to Black Lake Preserve, we will provide information for self-guided birding at the Bishop Paiute Reservation Conservation Open Space (COSA) for May 14th and 15th. RSVP for the guided bird walk on May 14th or for the self-guided birding to [email protected].

This event will also be a community science effort to document the birds that we see. You don’t have to be a scientist to participate in community science! After you document the birds we see, scientists will learn from your observations. Data gathered from community science informs conservation decisions and can track what is happening in the natural world in real time.
