Join an early morning bird walk with Sequoia Audubon Society and Friends of Edgewood docents at Edgewood Park and Natural Preserve. Hike through oak woodlands and natural meadows. Look and listen for California Thrasher, Wrentit, Oak Titmouse, Red-shouldered Hawk, Western Bluebirds, and many more. In addition to spotting birds, find out about their habits, preferences, and how they live.
Interested children are welcome.
Meet at the Bill and Jean Lane Education Center, at the main entrance to the park off Edgewood Road. See directions to 6 Old Stage Coach Road, Redwood City, CA, 94062.
Terrain: This 3 to 4 mile hike traverses gentle hills and lasts 3 hours.
Pace: Slow! We stop often to listen to a song, spot the singer if we can, then make sure everyone interested has seen the bird, too. It can take an hour to go the first 1/2 mile! Then we hurry up where there are fewer birds.
Bring water, a hat, sturdy shoes, sunscreen, and a snack if you wish. Bring binoculars or bird guides if you have them.
Restrooms and water are available only near the main entrance.
Dogs or other pets are not allowed in the park.
No reservations are needed unless you have a group of 10 or more. For group reservations, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
