Please join Gary Potter for a trip to the Wind Wolves Preserve in Kern County. Wind Wolves is an ecologically unique region where the Transverse Ranges, Coast Ranges, Sierra Nevada, western Mojave Desert and San Joaquin Valley converge. It has an impressive array of landforms and habitats that serve as a critical landscape linkage and wildlife corridor between the Coast Ranges and Sierra Nevada. For more information about the preserve, see http://wildlandsconservancy.org/preserve_windwolves.html.
Be prepared for several miles of trail walking. Bring all the food and drink you'll need for the day, since there will be no places to buy meals.
We've gone to Wind Wolves a few times in recent years, and it has been a fantastic experience. The area just outside the preserve is one of the few places in the San Joaquin Valley to find Common Ground-Doves.
Meet at the old Mervyn's parking lot (Ashlan & Blackstone) at 6:45am so that we can be on the road by 7am.
