Presenters: Anne Ardillo and George Eade
This virtual voyage will take you beyond the locked gates of Skaggs Island to learn about its many raptors — eagles, hawks, owls, kites, falcons, and more. A former naval base, now a part of the San Pablo Bay National Wildlife Refuge in the North Bay, Skaggs Island is a favored habitat for many birds, especially raptors.
George and Anne will share photography and natural history stories about the unique biodiversity, the wintering birds and the history of this unique area.
Anne Ardillo teaches raptor classes for Golden Gate Audubon. George Eade has surveyed raptors at Skaggs Island for over 7 years and reports to the USFWS and the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory.
