Description

Birdwatching and Dune Restoration at Point Reyes
Saturday, April 13, 2019
9 am–2:30 pm

Join us in exploring local avian communities while restoring the dunes of Abbotts Lagoon in Point Reyes. This event will entail hiking through grasslands and wetlands not normally accessible to visitors, with the group making its way into the Seashore's coastal dunes for an enjoyable and casual day of habitat restoration. Come prepared to encounter a variety of avifauna from birds of prey and passerines to shorebirds and waterfowl! Bring your own binoculars, packed lunch, water, and sense of wonder! All levels of birding experience are welcome. For more details about the event or to sign up, please contact Michael Spaeth by email.

Meet at the "Antenna Farm" Wayside at 9 am. (Map)

Recommended Gear:
Please wear sturdy shoes, long pants, and bring a water bottle and a sack lunch. It is recommended that volunteers bring plenty of water (around 2 liters for the day). There are no restrooms at the site and the nearest restrooms are at the North Beach parking lot, so please keep that in mind. The park will provide all the tools and gloves necessary.

If you would like to volunteer to restore native habitat by removing invasive plants from Point Reyes, but can't participate on any of these workdays, check out these other opportunities:
