Great for viewing egrets, herons and geese in the large North Area Pond

This memorial bench is located on the Covell Greenbelt with a great view of the larger North Area Pond. It's also conveniently close to the bathrooms at the Northstar Park parking lot.

The plaque's faded inscription reads, 'In memory of Bruce Maxwell (1948 - 1998) from his friends at Yolo Audubon Society - May you enjoy the birds as much as he did '.
