Field Trip: Milliken Reservoir

Date: Friday April 21, 2023

Time: 8:00 AM

Our April Field Trip will be to Milliken Reservoir with Murray Berner. (NSAS Event)


Leader: Murray Berner

Description: Murray Berner gets special permission to lead us for a morning of birding at Milliken reservoir, which is usually not open to the public. Situated below Atlas Peak, Milliken reservoir is a remote source of Napa city water. We will take a circuitous route to reach the lake, passing through blue oak woodland, the old Camp Milliken, a Douglas fir forest, and skirt the canyon below the dam. The gravel road loop from Atlas Peak Rd to the lake and back is about 2.2 miles with a few modest grades.

Bring binoculars, water and snacks.

Health & Safety: NSAS requests that all participants be vaccinated for Covid-19, with updated boosters. All participants will sign a Field Trip Waiver and Waiver of Liability.

This Trip is Limited to 15 participants for NSAS Members Only unless space is available to non-members. (We encourage everyone to become a member. Membership only costs $25 for an individual or $35 for families.)

Directions: All participants MUST meet at the Silverado Plaza Shopping Center in Napa at Old Soscol Way, east side of Nob Hill Foods at 8:00, to carpool to Milliken.
