See who’s summering at Lake Merritt! The winter birds have left for the season, but plenty of our flying friends are spending the season enjoying the warm Bay Area months. Come out and search for who’s raising young, singing songs, and enjoying the weather!

This event is appropriate for beginners of all ages. Bring binoculars if you have them, but we’ll have some to share. $5 parking fee at Lake Merritt.

Bring drinking water and sun protection. This will be about a 1 mile loop on paved paths with no elevation change, and we’ll be walking slowly to find birds.

Help CCNH continue to provide free natural history events! We suggest a $20 donation per event, no one turned away for lack of funds. You can make a donation here.

Please RSVP so we know how many people to expect.
