The area is situated along the Pacific Flyway where waterfowl, shorebirds and other wildlife travel, with migrating ducks arriving in late summer and fall, and snow geese beginning to arrive in October.

Local experts lead the .3-mile walks on a paved trail to an elevated viewing deck, for a bird’s-eye view of wildlife. Guides provide information about wildlife adaptation, natural history, conservation efforts and identification of wildlife. Heavy rain cancels tours.

Groups of less than 12 people may attend without reservations. Visitors may also take self-guided tours.

Gray Lodge is at 3207 Rutherford Road.

Entrance passes are available at the entrance, or at sporting goods businesses.

Group tours are offered through Feb. 1, 2014, unless otherwise informed.

For information, call the Gray Lodge naturalist office at 846-7505, or visitwww.dfg.ca.gov/lands/wa/region2/graylodge/events.
