Description: The San Luis National Wildlife Refuge is one of several refuges that make up the San Luis NWR Complex, all located along the Pacific Flyway. Each refuge is home to incredible bird life, but the San Luis Refuge features three automobile tour routes and eight nature trails for the public to view and photograph wildlife in a natural setting. The refuge is also home to a large Tule Elk herd. We will also stop at the Visitor Center, which complements the wildlife refuges of San Joaquin Valley and provides a launching point to explore the entire Refuge Complex. Lisa Myers of Let's Go Birding and the Los Gatos Birdwatcher will lead this tour alongside SCVAS Executive Director, Ralph Schardt. Lisa has taught classes for SCVAS for decades and strives to get more people into birding.
