Bird walks are on Saturday mornings. In 2016 the walks will begin at 8am on the first Saturday of the month. Meet at the entrance to Hyde Street Pier. There is no charge to join the walk. For information call the Visitor Center, 415-447-5000, between 9:30am and 5pm.

All are welcome including children and beginners. We will view water, shore, citified, and migratory birds on this easy stroll. There will be a brief orientation to spotting birds, and to using guidebooks and binoculars. Dress in layers with sun hat and sunscreen. Bring your own guidebooks and binoculars if you have them.
