In-person tours of our local wetlands
are now available!
Yolo Basin Foundation offers monthly tours of the Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area (October – June) and the City of Davis Wetlands. The tours are appropriate for all levels of outdoor enthusiasts and birders. These are driving tours on gravel roads with several stops and an occasional, optional short walk.
Due to safety and current health guidelines, tours are limited to 20 people. Every individual must be registered to participate. By registering, you are agreeing to follow health and safety protocols including wearing a mask for the entirety of the event, maintaining 6 feet of distance from other individuals or groups, providing transportation for yourself and/or your group, and not attending if you are showing symptoms. Social distancing practices will be in place when walking and stopping to view wildlife.
Please bring your own binoculars if you have them. Binoculars are available to borrow. They are cleaned thoroughly and dry between each tour.
Donations to support our wetlands education programs are greatly appreciated! There is a suggested donation of $10/adult for tours.
