Every March, the American River Natural History Association (ARNHA) and Sacramento Audubon collaborate to offer two special Saturday morning birding trips coupled with wonderful breakfast fare.  

This event, held at the Effie Yeaw Nature Center, starts with bird walks guided by some of our best local birders. For weeks in advance of the walks, these guides scout the Nature Study Area so they will be able to point out nests and local rarities. After the walk, attendees enjoy wonderful food, good coffee and a silent auction to help raise money for the Effie Yeaw Nature Center. No extensive birding experience is necessary - this event caters to all levels. 

We offer a separate program each day, please see below.


Saturday, March 28 at 8:00am. 

Attendees enjoy a bird walk that is approximately 90 minutes long, followed by the traditional casserole breakfast buffet provided by some of the best cooks among ARNHA board members and Nature Center volunteers. Participants can also bid in a silent auction for unique items and experiences. Ages 12 to adult.



Saturday, April 4 at 8:00am 

At our family-friendly event, you can choose to join either a family bird walk, a one hour walk with children 6 and over, or a longer (approximately 90-minute) adult bird walk open to those ages 12 and above. This event features a hot pancake breakfast prepared and hosted by the Carmichael Kiwanis. Ages 6 to adult. (Note: Child attendees must be accompanied by a paid adult attendee.)
