O: Modjeska Canyon:
Join us at Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary where the hummingbirds (and others) gather. We’ll wander up a nature trail and
then climb a short ways up an inclined trail, at a comfortable pace for all, so that we can get a bit of exercise and a
view back down Modjeska Cyn. Then we’ll do some naturalizing at the Nature Center and recumbent birding at the
Sanctuary. Meet 9:30 am at the North Orange County rideshare pt or 10:30 am at the Tucker Wildlife parking lot at
the end of Modjeska Cyn (turnoff from Santiago Cyn Rd to Modjeska Cyn). Wear warm clothes, sturdy shoes; bring
water and snack or lunch. Rain cancels.
