WOOD­BRIDGE — The Cal­i­for­nia De­part­ment of Fish and Wildlife will host a Crane Tour from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Satur­day at the Wood­bridge Eco­log­i­cal Re­serve, 11154 W. Wood­bridge Road, Lodi.

The bird tour meets 90 min­utes be­fore sun­set at the South Site, where do­cent guides greet at­ten­dees and give a pre­sen­ta­tion.

The tour in­volves very lit­tle walk­ing and guests are en­cour­aged to bring a camp chair, dress warmly and bring binoc­u­lars or spot­ting scopes for up-close view­ing. Do­cent guides are trained in crane ecol­ogy and may take the group down Wood­bridge Road in car car­a­vans to see cranes and other wildlife us­ing the grain fields and marshes along the road.

Tours usu­ally con­clude a half-hour af­ter sun­set, with the an­tic­i­pated fly-in of the cranes at the North Site, where a view­ing shel­ter hides view­ers from the in­com­ing birds.

The CDFW re­minds all at­ten­dees 16 years and older to ob­tain a CDFW Lands Pass or a cur­rent fish­ing or hunt­ing li­cense. Full tour ac­cess is not al­lowed with­out the pre­sen­ta­tion of the doc­u­ment. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit www. wildlife.ca.gov/Re­gions /3/Crane-Tour.
