Whelan Lake Bird Sanctuary Field Trip
October 21 @ 8:00 am
Rating: Moderate (Uneven dirt paths)
From Hwy 78 west, exit north on El Camino Real and continue to Douglas Drive. From I-5 north exit east on Hwy 76 and continue to the Douglas Drive exit. Take Douglas Drive north approximately 1 mile and turn left on North River Road. Continue west on North River Rd. to the entrance gate at the end. NOTE: Greg has again offered to have the gate open at 7:30 am for Early Birds and leave it open until 8:45 to accommodate latecomers. Proceed to the Sanctuary on the dirt road. Disregard the “No Trespassing” Signs. Park at the parking area next to the caretaker’s house overlooking the lake.
For those interested in lunch, we will be dining at “The Pitstop”, located beside the police station, at 3825 Mission Avenue, Oceanside 92058, just a couple of blocks west of Douglas Drive. It’s loaded with 50’s atmosphere, automobile memorabilia, and serves at least twenty different styles of sandwiches, all at reasonable prices.
