The boat tours are a rare opportunity to see nature up close on beautiful Clear Lake. Each day consists of six 90-minute tours leaving on the half hour between 8:00 am and 11:00 am. Tours from Lakeside County Park will take place on Saturday and Sunday, April 29 and 30. Tours from Shady Acres Campground are Saturday and Sunday, May 6 and 7.
Each boat will have an experienced Audubon guide to point out the birds being seen on the tours and explain their behaviors. Besides several species of nesting herons and egrets, tour guests are likely to see nesting osprey and cormorants, yellow-headed blackbirds, and Western and Clark’s grebes in courtship displays where they “dance” in pairs across the lake surface.
