Winter to early spring is the best time of year for viewing endangered Sierra bighorn before they retreat to higher elevations. These animals are difficult to see and there are approximately 500 in the world, all in the Sierra Nevada.

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Sierra Nevada Bighorn Sheep Foundation provide free public field trips to view Sierra bighorn.

Pre-registration at asksnbs@wildlife.ca.gov is required as space is limited and fieldtrips are bighorn and weather dependent.

Fieldtrip groups will meet at 9:00 am in the Bishop CDFW parking lot, 787 N. Main St. (behind El Pollo Loco). Be dressed for the weather and in sturdy footwear. Sun protection is highly recommended. Bring binoculars or spotting scopes if you have them. The group will try to carpool from the office as much as possible, and vehicles that can be driven off pavement are preferred but not required. Fieldtrips are usually concluded by noon, and typically involve little to no walking.

RSVP as soon as possible if you would like to join: asksnbs@wildlife.ca.gov – these trips can fill up fast.
