Beginner’s Bird and Plant ID Walk at Lake Cunningham Park (San Jose) 
Sunday, September 19, 2021 09:00am
 

As fall begins, join us as we resume our First Day of the Season beginner’s bird and plant identification walks through Lake Cunningham Park. The lake is a major destination for waterfowl and migratory birds, and the park’s native garden draws many birds for 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.

The distance will be 4 miles round-trip on a level path. Bring a hat, water, your plant and bird lists and binoculars. Wear comfortable walking shoes. Parking fee is $6.

Space is limited. No drop-ins. RSVP is required on Meetup: www.meetup.com/California-Native-Plant-Society-Santa-Clara-Valley-Chapter. This walk is organized jointly by CNPS, Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society and Santa Clara Valley Open Space Authority.

Directions to the trailhead are on the Meetup page.
