Winter and early spring is the time of year when Sierra bighorn are most easily found and viewed before they retreat to higher elevations.
We partner with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife to provide free public field trips to view Sierra bighorn. Tentative dates for 2017 are January 27 (updated 1/12/17), February 24 and April 22. Typically very little walking is required. Watch this website for times and further information, as these field trips are highly weather dependent. Pre-registration is required.
You can also set up a private one-day field trip with Dr. Wehausen for a $1,500 donation to the Sierra Nevada Bighorn Sheep Foundation. Contact us via email if interested.
