Note: The Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area is currently closed to the public due to flooding. Depending on weather conditions, it may re-open shortly or remain closed for a longer period of time. We are tentatively keeping our YBWA Tours open for the time being, but please be aware that they may be canceled if the YBWA is inaccessible.
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. Pets are not allowed on tours.
Tours are limited to 30 people. Every individual must be registered to participate.
Please bring your own binoculars if you have them. Binoculars are available to borrow.
Donations to support our wetlands education programs are greatly appreciated! There is a suggested donation of $10/adult for tours.
