Beginner’s Bird and Plant ID Walk at Lake Cunningham Park (San Jose) 
Saturday, December 17, 2022 09:00am
 

At the onset of winter, join us for a 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 due to its habitat value. On this walk, Vicki Silvas-Young will show you how to identify the common birds of our area, while Arvind Kumar will identify the native plants that they depend on for food and shelter.

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.

Space is limited so please reserve your spot by going to our Chapter’s Meetup page to sign up. This walk is co- sponsored by CNPS, Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society and Santa Clara Valley Open Space Authority.

Directions: Meet at the Marina parking lot at 9am. The Marina parking lot is on the western shore of the lake, next to Raging Waters, at the opposite side of the park from the main entrance on 2305 S. White Road. The parking fee is $6. In Google Maps, search for “Lake Cunningham Marina” (37.3353176 -121.8120059) to be directed to the Marina.
