Landscape, cityscape, mountain-scape, cloud-scape. View east in the Sacramento valley toward the skyline of the city of Sacramento and the Sierra Nevada mountains.Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area, El Macero CAI love the diversity of nature, And the proximity to large metropolitan areas thanks to the foresight of nature enthusiasts, hunters, politicians and rangers and naturalists who work together to create some wonderful pockets of wildlife right in our own backyard. Case in point, the Yolo Bypass Wildlife area.If you are traveling on Interstate 80 east from the San Francisco bay area, just past Davis the highway becomes a cantilever stretch of road for about 5 to 7 miles as it crosses over the great Sacramento Valley floodplain. This area is a low point where the rains from winter and the snow runoff from the Sierra mountains gather. Some of this land is utilized for agriculture like cattle grazing or rice growing. It is also utilized by hundreds of thousands of birds as they migrate with the seasons. The bypass also created an opportunity for a wildlife refuge and thus the Yolo Bypass Wildlife area was formed. The refuge covers about 16,000 acres and is the home or rest stop for countless birds and mammals accessible thanks to the caretakers at the California Fish and Game department.

Yolo Bypass Wildlife Area, El Macero CA


I love the diversity of nature, And the proximity to large metropolitan areas thanks to the foresight of nature enthusiasts, hunters, politicians and rangers and naturalists who work together to create some wonderful pockets of wildlife right in our own backyard. Case in point, the Yolo Bypass Wildlife area.
