An Exhausting But Interesting Weekend at EcoCamp Berryessa

Tuleyome staff (of which I’m a part) and members enjoyed a great event at Ecocamp Berryessa over the weekend. Almost 70 people showed up, and participated in a picnic BBQ, a prize drawing, an impromptu hike along the North End Trail, fun on the water, and lots of comradery.

Wildlife was heard and spotted throughout the event including foxes, coyotes, osprey, herons ans egrets, Turkey Vultures, Brewer’s Blackbirds, Scrub Jays, Acorn Woodpeckers, a Barn Owl and a Great Horned Owl. We also heard a pair of cows mooing on the lakeshore after they escaped from a nearby ranch.

Thank you to all of the donors who came out to celebrate with us. We couldn’t do what we do without you. Thank you, too, to Chris Cahill and the Napa Parks and Open Space District for making the camp available for use; and to the G Street Grille and their chefs for the wonderful BBQ.
