Spring Birding in the Laguna Series Birdwatching and Natural History Walks 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 listen for the resident songbirds and the colorful migrants arriving from Central America with their vibrant songs. We will begin and end at Heron Hall at the Laguna Environmental Center (hot drinks and snacks provided), and carpool to sites along the Laguna. Bring binoculars, (spotting scope optional), a field guide, comfortable walking shoes, layered clothing, water and a packed lunch or snacks. We will end 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.
