Beginner’s Bird and Plant Identification Walk Series at Lake Cunningham Park

Session #2: First Day of Summer – Saturday, June 16, 2018, 9 am to 12 noon

Do you love being outdoors? Do you want to deepen your appreciation of nature by learning to identify the birds and plants around you? At the onset of summer, join us for a beginner’s bird and plant identification walk through Lake Cunningham Park. This park is a major destination for waterfowl and migratory birds, and its native garden is visited by many birds due to its habitat value. On this walk, Vicki Silvas-Young will show you how to identify the common birds of our area, as well as the native plants they depend on for food, shelter, and nesting places. Difficulty Level: The distance is 4 miles round trip on a level path. Notes: Bring a hat, water, your bird and plant list, and binoculars. Wear comfortable walking shoes. Parking fee is $6.

Space is limited. RSVP through meetup.com (“California Native Plant Society – Santa Clara Valley Chapter” or “Open Space Appreciation Hiking Enthusiasts”) to reserve your spot.

This plant walk is organized jointly by the California Native Plant Society, Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society, and the Open Space Authority, and is open to all.
