At this time of year the species diversity here should be fantastic: waterfowl and shorebirds that have stayed for the winter will still be here, joined by others that are on their way north. We’ll start the day scanning the lagoon and later we’ll visit the forest at Pine Gulch where the trees should be full of birds and the songs of spring. This walk is for ages 15 and up. We request that no pets (except service animals) attend. Heavy rain may cancel. If questionable weather, call (415) 893-9527 on the morning of the walk for a recorded message to see if the walk is cancelled. David Herlocker will lead. Questions: contact David at (415) 893-9508 or DHerlocker@marincounty.org.
