Clark’s Nutcracker

You can’t miss this one! Spectacular scenery, beautiful trees, fresh air and…birds!!

Come join us as we take the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway to the upper tram station where we will meet on the patio overlooking the Coachella Valley. We will start our walk at Grubbs Point, then a leisurely walk around Long Valley.

We will take the first Tram car up to the upper station on June 23rd. We will spend time together looking for great birds and perhaps a couple of surprises, you never know.

The walk will be complete by about noon, which will give time to enjoy a scrumptious lunch at the Tram Café or continue to hike the many trails available.

So don’t miss this one, good friends, good food, good views and great birds! This one is a have to!!
