Cosumnes River Preserve

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 2 people are interested

The Cosumnes River Preserve is home to thousands of birds that rely on its' habitat to survive.
The Raptor Survey Team is a key part of monitoring raptors on the Preserve, helping the Staff develop data to better track how many raptors visit and what types of habitat they frequent.
As a volunteer, you would work with other volunteers to monitor a route, taking note of how many raptors you see, what species they are, and other details.

The team meets every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month from March-September. Surveys last from 9am-1pm. It is ideal for your to be available for every survey, but if you need to miss a few, we can still work with your schedule.

A training is required and a date will be determined soon. Please reach out with any questions by calling 916-826-0927 or emailing whitesa@saccounty.net

Mission Statement

We seek to protect and enhance the habitat within the Cosumnes River Preserve project area, including riparian forest, wetland, vernal pool grassland, oak woodland, riverine, marsh, and farm habitat, in order to preserve biodiversity and benefit declining, threatened, and endangered species of wildlife and plants. We believe that effective conservation integrates the preservation of natural lands as well as agricultural lands and practices.


The Cosumnes River Preserve consists of over 50,000 acres of wildlife habitat and agricultural lands owned by seven land-owning Partners. The Partners include The Nature Conservancy, Bureau of Land Management, California Department of Fish & Wildlife, Sacramento County Regional Parks, Department of Water Resources, Ducks Unlimited, and the California State Lands Commission. The Preserve is centered along the Cosumnes River, its floodplains and riparian habitat. This habitat is buffered by a variety of agricultural operations. The Preserve provides numerous social, economic, and recreational benefits to local communities and to people residing in the larger Sacramento and San Joaquin areas. The habitat supports wildlife, including birds that migrate throughout the Pacific Flyway.



We'll work with your schedule.
