Senior Stroll at Las Gallinas

February 11, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

| Free

Meet at the Las Gallinas Sanitary District water treatment ponds in San Rafael (310 Smith Ranch Road)
The ponds at the Las Gallinas water treatment facility are a fabulous place to get close looks at a variety of waterfowl, plus there are usually plenty of hawks hunting for rodents and other prey in the surrounding fields. This is a level, well-maintained gravel road, and is wheelchair accessible but small-wheeled walkers are not recommended. Remember to bring binoculars, if you have them.
This walk is for ages 18 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.
No registration is required.
Questions: Contact David Herlocker at or (415) 893-9508.
DIRECTIONS: From Hwy 101 in San Rafael, take the exit for Smith Ranch Rd east approximately 0.7 miles. Drive over the railroad tracks and immediately turn left to stay on Smith Ranch Rd. (If you go through the park entrance, you have gone too far). Follow Smith Ranch Rd 0.8 miles to treatment facility. Park on the left.
