Comments:
This was the monthly walk at Estrella. The river had water west of our trail, however conditions were still dry and water sources are a must. Human activity also may have limited observations. Walk was done on the east end of the park, then along riparian area east of Vineyard Avenue and ended at the mitigated ponds
