On Sunday, Nov. 11, let us know that you're a veteran, and in which branch of the military that you served, and we will give you 15% off your entire purchase. Veterans Day is a day to honor those who served for our country

and goes back to 1919 after the end of World War 1. It was called Armistice Day.

The Los Gatos Birdwatcher is proud to honor all veterans.

Merced National Wildlife Refuge

7:45 AM – 4:00 PM

The Merced National Wildlife Refuge encompasses 10,258 acres of wetlands, native grasslands, vernal pools, and riparian areas. It was established in 1951 under the Lea Act to attract wintering waterfowl from adjacent farmland where their foraging actvities were causing crop damage. In the last few decades, changes in local agricultural practices and Refuge management activities have reduced these wildlife/crop issues. The Refuge plays host to the largest wintering populations of lesser Sandhill Cranes and Ross' geese along the Pacific Flyway. Each year more than 20,000 cranes and 60,000 arctic-nesting geese make the Refuge home for six months. Here they mingle with thousands of other visiting waterfowl, waterbirds, and shorebirds—making the Refuge a true winter phenomenon. Fee: $70 (includes transportation, gas, entrance fees. Tip to driver is separate).
