Saturday Morning ‘Birding on the Bay’ Sail

Saturday, November 18 @ 8:15 am - 11:00 am

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 8:15am on Saturday, repeating until December 30, 2017

Come explore the wildlife-rich shoreline of the San Francisco Bay aboard the Schooner Freda B!

On this refreshing morning sail, we’ll board in Sausalito and cruise to the most promising areas for bird activity. If the conditions are right, we’ll start by checking out some local hotspots in Richardson Bay. Then we’ll sail through Raccoon Srait, and depending on the conditions past Angel Island, we’ll either sail further north or east.

Further north we can skirt along Corte Madera Marsh, another important stop for migrating shorebirds and home to protected species such as the San Pablo Song Sparrow and California Clapper Rail. We could even head as far north as “The Brothers,” a series of rocks that are also prime for spotting birds.

If the conditions aren’t suitable to head north, we’ll head east and reach Brooks Island, another Audubon Important Bird Area that supports exceptional concentrations of seaducks and migrating shorebirds during the wintertime.

We hope you’ll come enjoy the Bay’s natural beauty on this one-of-a-kind sail!
