Spring Birding in the Laguna Birdwatching and Natural History Walk with Lisa Hug
Join us for this incredibly fun learning experience outdoors with one of the area’s foremost birders. On this walk, we will enjoy the wide variety of waterfowl that utilizes deep channels of the Laguna that the winter rains have brought. We will begin and end at the Laguna Environmental Center (hot drinks and snacks provided), and carpool to sites along the Laguna. There will be a brief PowerPoint orientation by Lisa. Bring binoculars, (spotting scope optional), a field guide, comfortable walking shoes, layered clothing, water and a packed lunch or snacks. We will end our walk with a group lunch and make a list of the species which we encountered. In the case of forecasted moderate to heavy rain (determined the afternoon before), we will cancel and issue full refunds.
