Beginner’s Bird and Plant ID Walk at Lake Cunningham Park (San Jose) 
Sunday, September 25, 2022 09:00am
 
Contact Meetup page at www.meetup.com/California- Native-Plant-Society-Santa-Clara-Valley-Chapter/

Join Arvind Kumar, Ashok Jethanandani, and Vicki Silvas- Young for this first of Fall beginner’s bird and plant identification walk 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 will show you how to identify the common birds of our area. Arvind and Ashok will discuss the native plants they depend on for food, shelter and nesting places. 

The distance is 4 miles round-trip on a level path. Bring a hat, water, your bird and plant lists, and binoculars. Wear comfortable walking shoes. The parking fee is $6. Please look for an email a few days before the trip regarding parking.

RSVP is required to join us for the walk; no drop-ins please. Space is limited. To register, please visit the walk’s Meetup page at www.meetup.com/California-Native-Plant-Society-Santa-Clara-Valley-Chapter/ . This walk is cosponsored by CNPS, Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society and Santa Clara Valley Open Space Authority.

Directions to the trailhead are on the Meetup page. We’ll meet at the Marina building at 9am. The parking fee is $6.
