Tahoe region-wide birding tours set for this weekend
July 28, 2015
On Saturday, Aug. 1, join the Tahoe Institute for Natural Science four four free birding tours around Lake Tahoe and Truckee, followed by local craft brews and burgers.
The event is part of TINS' Tahoe Big Year – a yearlong event that celebrates the hundreds of bird species that make the Tahoe region their home. Although Tahoe Big Year events typically are reserved for TINS members only, everyone is invited on Aug. 1.
The Birds, Burgers and Brews event will have four different birding tours. Three of them will be caravan style, moving up the west and east shores of Lake Tahoe, and also south from Truckee, checking out preferred birding locations along the way.
Tours depart at 8 a.m. and end around 3 p.m. at 64 Acres in Tahoe City (next to the Transit Center). In addition, there will be a family/kid tour from 1-3 p.m.
Just feel like a cookout? Join TINS for a cookout from 3-6 p.m. Meal tickets are available for pre-purchase at TINSweb.org, and include a burger or hotdog, fixings, chips, drinks, and a beer for those over 21 — tickets cost $12/$6 (adults/kids).
Carpooling is encouraged. Those coming from the North Shore/ Truckee area are encouraged to leave their cars at 64 Acres on the way down to South Lake.
