MEET: Yosemite Conservancy office, 5020 El Portal Rd. by the post office and the historic trains in El Portal. We can use the bathroom there and there’s a shop nearby if people need coffee, gas or supplies. Foresta has no restrooms or services.
Join us for our Spring outing to Foresta in Yosemite NP, aka Big Meadow. We will begin in El Portal and make stops along the Merced River corridor to look for Peregrine Falcons and Black Swifts. We’ll spend most of our time afoot in Foresta looking for woodpecker species, raptors, dippers, swifts and warblers, covering approximately 2 miles of remarkably diverse habitats. We’ll carpool into the park. Yosemite Conservancy will supply entrance fee waivers. Approximate end time is 1-1:30p back in El Portal.
