“Sittin’ on the dock of the bay, watchin’ the tide roll away…” On this outing you’ll be sitting by the dock of the bay, watching the birds come your way! Docents Karen DeMello and Cathy Brown invite you to bring lunch, a blanket, and a portable chair (optional for comfort) as you learn about tides and rails near the parking lot. You’ll have an opportunity to view the newly renovated Cooley Landing. This will be a 0.5-mile outing. Bring binoculars and spotting scope if you have them.
To reach the southern portion of the Preserve, take the University Avenue exit (toward East Palo Alto) from Highway 101. (From southbound Highway 101, turn left on University Avenue. From northbound Highway 101, the freeway exit will dead-end into the stoplight for Donohoe Street. Turn left on Donohoe Street, then turn right on University Avenue.) Continue on University Avenue (north) for about 3 long blocks. Turn right on Bay Road. Follow Bay Road to the very end, continuing through gate RW01 (about 1 mile total). Note: Bay Road narrows and becomes a dirt road. The Preserve parking area is on the left.
