This reservoir on upper Novato Creek is a great place to see a variety of winter birds. We’ll stroll along the shore and enjoy flocks of ducks, while keeping an eye open for raptors overhead. We often see golden eagles here, and now and again a peregrine makes an appearance. The trees here are always a good place to see a variety of woodpeckers, and there are usually plenty of mixed flocks of songbirds passing through as well. Remember to bring binoculars, if you have them. This walk is for ages 15 and up. We request that no pets (except service animals) attend. Rain may cancel. If questionable weather, call (415) 893-9527 after 8am on the morning of the event to hear a recorded message if cancelled. Park entrance fee is waived for participants. DIRECTIONS: From Hwy 101 in Novato, take the exit for San Marin Dr west 2.9 miles. Turn right onto Novato Blvd and follow for 2.6 miles. The park is on the left. Turn left after the gate house and follow to the parking lot.
